LAST POST – The Words
By H. W. Bryce
Offered in honour of all war veterans.
Goodbye, dear soul. You have fought the good fight and won the day.
You carried our flag and you fought with valour. We salute you. Now we’ll carry the torch on high
to cast light on the darkness of evil for country and peace. Like you, we shall try to car-ry
on even though we are afraid. You have won us a new sunrise and we shall seize an-oth-er day. Your
work is done and you’ve done us proud. End of day we shall remember you. Dear sou-
-oul. Goodbye. Now go to your rest. Sleep.
I offer this in reverence.
I remember my mother’s father, Wilfrid Lenton, and her two brothers, Wilfrid and Richard;
and My father, Herbert Leslie Bryce, and two of his brothers, Alfred and Raymond.
This is the extent of my knowledge of family military history.
May they rest in peace.
