"Faithful Forever"

Poems and prayers

The 15th Battalion Project Chairman, Brigadier-General Greg Young OMM, MSM, CD (ret’d) delivers the Exhortation at The Menin Gate during a special extended Last Post ceremony on 24 April 2010 recognizing the 15th Battalion.

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.

In most ceremonies of remembrance there is a reading of the fourth stanza of the poem “For the fallen” by Laurence Binyon. He was the assistant keeper of prints and drawings at the British Museum, and the author of several volumes of verse. For the fallen was first published in the London Times in 1914 and later in many anthologies of war verse. It was selected in 1919 to accompany the unveiling of the London Cenotaph and, like so many memorial traditions, passed into common use across the Commonwealth.
