Remembrance Day.

Here in Canada, November 11th is Remembrance Day - a day to reflect on all those who have served to protect our country in the past and present. I will be attending a service, as I always do when I'm able, and think fondly of my maternal grandfather, who fought in Europe in World War 2. I will recite this poem at least once, written on the battlefield by a Canadian soldier and memorised by schoolchildren ever since. 

Lest we forget.
