ALL GAVE SOME, SOME GAVE ALL.
LEST WE FORGET
ALL GAVE SOME, SOME GAVE ALL
A cap badge of honours on a beret of green,
One of the best sights, I’ve ever seen.
A rifle and sword, no bayonet in sight,
Weak at drill but strong in the fight.
The command of the bugle, played high on a hill,
Still through my body I feel the chill,
What makes them best? I hear people say,
They gave their tomorrow so you have today.
They are normal men at first glance,
But listen to their stories if given a chance,
As these Riflemen have seen it all
Fighting worldwide and seeing brothers fall.
So on the 11th hour, please have a thought,
For all the brave Riflemen that went and fought.
Lest we Forget
We will remember them all
Swift and Bold.
