War And Peace - Ww1 - Known Unto God - Poem by Paul Warren

In France in General Ware's Villages of the Dead
There are identical white headstones stretching out up ahead
Where the name and regiment of the fallen soldier is known
It is chiselled with the hat badge on each as is thrown
But for many of these brave men their name is lost
And written instead is 'Known unto God' in counting the cost
These words were penned by Rudyard Kipling
Tinged with his sadness for a son who was also missing.
