Dedicated To
The Men And Women
Of The Merchant Navy
Who Gave Their Lives Willingly
For The Freedom Of Others

They Have No Grave But The Cruel Sea
No Flowers At Their Head
A Rusted Hulk Their Only Tombstone
Fast On The Ocean Bed
They Shall Not Grow 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
