Hatred and prejudice is not removed easily.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning. We will remember them.
Proud of the British Armed Forces who enter conflicts purely to help others or sovereign land invaded.
Rule Britannia - Britain do it right.
For the fallen ...
With proud thanksgiving, a mother for her children,
England mourns for her dead across the sea.
Flesh of her flesh they were, spirit of her spirit,
Fallen in the cause of the free.
Solemn the drums thrill: Death august and royal
Sings sorrow up into immortal spheres.
There is music in the midst of desolation
And a glory that shines upon our tears.
They went with songs to the battle, they were young,
Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,
They fell with their faces to the foe.
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.
They mingle not with their laughing comrades again;
They sit no more at familiar tables of home;
They have no lot in our labour of the day-time;
They sleep beyond England's foam.
But where our desires are and our hopes profound,
Felt as a well-spring that is hidden from sight,
To the innermost heart of their own land they are known
As the stars are known to the Night;
As the stars that shall be bright when we are dust,
Moving in marches upon the heavenly plain,
As the stars that are starry in the time of our darkness,
Britain we do it right
Land of Hope and Glory, Mother of the Free,
How shall we extol thee, who are born of thee?
Wider still, and wider, shall thy bounds be set;
God, who made thee mighty, make thee mightier yet!
keep silent and remember them !
In the UK we celebrate and honour all that have served - those who lost their lives, those that are veteran status and those still serving.
In the UK we have always and will always treat our armed forces with respect, dignity and honour.
Britain we do it better and we do it right.
No matter the outcome we will respect for eternity and beyond.
Britain just do it better.
