    A special thank you to my uncle Geoffrey, a wireless airgunner, who gave up his life to help keep us free.

    I attended the early Remembrance Day service at the Commonwealth Cemetery this morning. As I shivered in sunny but -18ºC weather, I forced myself to think what it must have been like for those thousands in the mud and freezing water of the trenches and marvelled at their courage and bravery.

    A Veteran’s Day

    Watch we now
    The Flag doth flutter
    Our hearts beckon back
    To a land, another.
    Whether woodland, jungle or desert
    Where we had to serve
    Firefight or sniper, canon or rocket
    We found the nerve.
    And fight we did
    High above, on the land or close ashore
    The way was always clear
    Helping those who needed it
    And be able to look at yourself in the mirror.
    For those who answered the summons
    Much is due
    For the loss that most suffered
    Most will have no clue.
    As time proceeds
    The memories may grow less clear
    But may our children and theirs, always know
    The fear that we prevented
    The sacrifice we relented and
    The lives we protected.
