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.
It was the most terrible start to the Century.
Then we did it again.

They fought hard for it.
Yes, other Nations' young men fought too and the slaughter was immense. I honour Australians here, just now, but do not dishonour those others.
God take and keep them all.
The Southern Gal understands. We can take one nation as an illustration of all others, and praise the sacrifice. She suggests the tribute video below.
It is notable that in the near 100 years the scale of war has changed. The mass slaughter is now individual. The anonymous 'ranks' are now deeply skilled and equiped Knights.
These are, as always, the very best of Men.
