Front Inscription

               For the fallen

They went with songs to the battle, they were young,
Straight of limb, true of eye 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.
O. L. Binyon ( from For The Fallen) 

Commemorating 60th Year Anniversary 
World War II, ending in August 1945.
To those who served and to those 
who paid the supreme sacrifice

"We will remember them"
