Army Rumour Service Book of Remembrance, Afghanistan

RIP our brothers and sisters in arms..

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
A dust whom England bore, shaped, made aware,
Gave, once, her flowers to love, her ways to roam,
A body of England's, breathing English air,
Washed by the rivers, blest by suns of home.

And think, this heart, all evil shed away,
A pulse in the eternal mind, no less
Gives somewhere back the thoughts by England given;
Her sights and sounds; dreams happy as her day;
And laughter, learnt of friends; and gentleness,
In hearts at peace, under an English heaven.

The Soldier, Rupert Brooke.
Dulce et decorum est...

How often do we need to suffer these losses before somebody at the top does something.

RiP matey. Its obvious you won't be forgotten.
My heart bleeds for the fallen, RIP brave warrior!

BC, how apt your words :-(
RIP Corporal Bonner.

I never got to meet you, but I'm former soldier and a friend of your sister's

Keely has many, many friends and we will make sure that she gets looked after.

Sleep well, mate. You deserve it.

The glamour gone, some scattered graves and memories dim remain:
With his old pals across the field, he'll never trek again;
But yet there's nothing he regrets as he awaits his Call,
For what was done or lost or won, he did his bit - that's all.

R.I.P Gentlemen, may heaven welcome you with open arms
