Anzac Day 2018 - Tyne Cot Cemetery - Poem by Paul Warren

White head stones in countless rows
Soldiers all from the Great War battles

Thousands dead now glory served
Each one a son and loved one

Victoria Cross engraved as heroes found
Known unto God a sad refrain written

On the stone "Their name liveth for Evermore"
A Christian Cross on top of a German pill-box

Sacrifice for the "War to End Wars" unfulfilled
A hundred years past but still it begs belief.
