Have your say

DON’T cry for your fallen heroes,

Just be thankful for all they have done.

Let the world know you value their sacrifice,

And that their deeds will always live on.

They will ride with the gods they value,

Through endless time and more.

Past the limits of an infinite expansion,

To a perfection where sublime is a flaw.

Their memories will encircle all heavens,

And their names will be written in time.

Their deeds will be deeds of honour,

And their seed will follow that line.

The world will always have heroes,

And England will have more than her share.

They will sleep in the halls of Valhalla,

But when needed they will always be there.

Albert Armstrong,

Percy Street,

Hartlepool.
