For the Fallen

Today is Armistace Day and given the current conflicts that British troops are involved in around the globe it is a particularly apt time for member of the country to remember those that have given the ultimate sacrifice in the service of their country. If there is one thing that i belive in ad tried to instill in my students it is that we should not forget and that we need to understand the past better in order not to repeat the mistake of the past.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:

Age shall not weary them, nor the years contemn.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning

We will remember them.

Laurence Binyon For the Fallen
