VALE

new white ensign

 The Naval Ode

They have no grave

but the cruel sea

No flowers lay at their head

A rusting hulk is their tombstone.

Afast on the ocean bed.

They shall grow not old as we who 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.

Lest we forget

Our condolences to the family,  friends and mates of those who have crossed the bar … they may be gone but definately not  forgotton.
