FOR THOSE WHO GAVE THERE LIVES YESTERDAY   Leave a comment


For those who gave there lives yesterday
In ypres and mons where they stay
besides momuements where they lay

In our memorys they will stay
never ever faraway

They gave there lives for us today
a hundred years has passed away
They fought for peace in there day
leaving families behind on there way
They gave us hope in life today

That we may have freedom today
we wont forget the lives today
In our hearts there memorys will stay
In foreign fields faraway.

An act of terror on the streets of uk   Leave a comment


An act of terror on our streets

a man with a machete

a despicable and cruel deed

supposedly for his own belief

god will punish him indeed

as a mother and father now have to grief

at loss of their son a soldier i British soldier i believe

my heart goes out his family at this time in their grief

we are British and no more shall we accept this kind of behaviour

on our streets

each day where people are welcomed into our country

and behave in this way terrorising good people

with there words an acting this way

its time for people and government to to say enough of this

and be strong too

we all all god fearing people with beliefs too

there is no need to act like this

to promote a thought or belief as a ex serviceman

my heart my thoughts my prayers are with

this family and their loss today

and all the others from over the years

who suffered at hands of terrorist  attacks

and who have shed many tears

bring back the death penalty

and let them take what they have dished out today

maybe this will world will then turn good once again

and people will treat others in a kind and humane way

enough of this violence it stops today

IN memory of a soldier  who served for queen and country god bless his soul may he rest in peace Drummer Lee Rigby

 

By heavens light they sail away   Leave a comment


By heavens light they sail away

through Portsmouth’s entrance

across the sea

many sailors have sailed in once

our great navy

 

 

from time of Nelson’s great navy

Copenhagen,Ashanti , Nile and Trafalgar

 

 

to the home of britain royal navy

is where they sail from Portsmouth

a city full of fine magnificent history

 

from great first and second world wars

right back to king henry viii and the Elizabethans

the pride of Portsmouth is known for being mighty

 

 

in modern times Falklands , gulf  and my others times

Portsmouth has had its part to play in history

 

 

Field Marshall Montgomery

even enjoyed his football and watched our local team play

before and many great women and men of our services

left to fight on french beaches at d day

 

 

by heavens light did they sail away

stars guiding them to war and home

again with pride they were guarded by

our many ships of the great

Royal navy

 

Portsmouth the home of our proud Royal Navy

They gave there lives for us today in far flung countrys and fields so faraway   Leave a comment


The boots come out and shoes will shine

people gather and await patiently

poppy are pinned to clothes for all to see

the veterans get ready and stand at ease

 

 

awaiting the order to march forward for all to see

they wear the badges and beret and medals too

with pride and honour  the 11th hour is due

 

 

they assemble across the world in many great cities

to remember those who went before them and sacrificed they lives

in the name of king and queen and country

 

 

and those who have given service since the world wars

and many conflicts of today we remember them

as we march forward on this armistice day

 

 

don’t forget us when you go home

as we will always be here resting in fields and country’s so far away

we went in hope and peace and gave our lives so mercifully

for you back there so you could live in a peaceful world today

 

 

for this we honour and remember you on this remembrance day

as the last post sounds from the bugles played

comrades and veterans and family’s to children and parents

 

 

will remember loved ones too who gave so much with such pride courage and bravery for me and you

 

as they gave there lives for us today in far-flung fields and country’s so far away

we stand to attention and salute you  the fallen the brave  and the veterans too

you will be in our hearts always and in our memory’s today and forever may you rest in peace and tranquility.

a minutes silence in your memory.

WE WILL ALWAY REMEMBER THE PEOPLE OF WOOTEN BASSET   4 comments


This past week has become the end of something special not often seen

where small group of people got together

to remember the brave and the few

who gave there lives for our country

serving us too

they started as small group of friends

all from the Royal british legion

who came together to mark their respect and pay tribute

to our brave servicemen men and women

as they flew into RAF Lyneham

on their way home too

they passed through the wonderful town

of Wooten basset

where as their hearses gathered

and got ready for their final journey

home where there bodies

will rest and be remembered too

these wonderful people

of Wooten basset took time out of their day

to line the streets in numbers

with the family’s of the dead servicemen and women

as they passed their way

they stood to attention and saluted them

with pride they showed us something

special as their numbers grew

untill they became hundreds and drew in the media too

the local pub opened its doors to families of dead men and women

and made them welcome too

to the people of Wooten basset

are thanks goes out too you

hold your heads up with pride

you are truly kind

and very special people too

so this is from an ex serviceman

with great respect i pay tribute to you.
