In Remembrance (East Walton)
Remembrance Sunday is a day to commemorate the contribution of
military and civilian servicemen and women in the two World Wars and
."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."
