At the Eleventh Hour On the Eleventh Day Of the Eleventh Month
We Thank You:
Soldier, Walter Ridout (Battle of the Somme, 1916)
Sergeant, Albert Edward Matthews

Seaman, Stanley Matthews (Lost at sea on HMS Hood, 24 May, 1941)

And to all who sacrificed their all for us. Lest We Forget.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
(From the poem The Fallen, Laurence Binyhn 1869-1943)
