The volley rolled across the plain                     winter weather...
Memory sad and filled with pain
Mother's sons in valour lay
Remembered on this November day.

Soldier shot and laying dead
Sailor down, down deep in the ocean bed.
Airmen high in a blazing sky
Some, like they, in war must die.

To those now left this day we honour.                   electrically!
In silence, "God" we pray in sorrow.
No more we hope to have war's horror
That youth may live, not die tomorrow.
