    Reminds me of the ending of the fourth “Blackadder” series.

    Thanks, nice photo, too. I am reading Martin Gilbert’s The First World War. A couple of days ago I got to the part where that poem was mentioned. A put off reading this for a long time, because the terrible carnage & senseless deaths depress me. Gilbert includes poems and passages of letters from those in the field. It makes the deaths more personal and poignant. And that torch in the poem was passed from hand to hand to hand times without number.

    This poem was used not only to mourn WW-1 dead, but in its time also as a recruiting tool in that “War to end all wars” - a line omitted above is “Take up our quarrels with our foes.” America’s Decoration Day, which became Memorial Day, should be remembered most deeply in 2009 for those who died in our Civil War so that ALL Americans have the same rights under our Constitution.
