    They fell with their faces to the foe.

    They shall not grow old, as we that 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

    RIP

  8. He was.
     
  9. My uncle,originally domiciled in the Irish Free State, a Royal Engineer and veteran of D Day, was proud till the day he died at 92 of his service to the Corps. He often told me of the visit to his unit by King George VI on the eve of that great adventure. The King began his address with the words "Gentlemen of the Royal Engineers". His King had called a lowly Corporal a "gentleman", he said.
    This week we lay two young gentlemen to rest. They may not have had the "great adventure" in life to which every youg man and woman has a right. Their families may not have many medals to mark their achievements. Nevertheless their potential was there, there was promise and a life to live.
    Goodbye, Gentlemen of the Royal Engineers, God rest you both.
     
  10. He was ex-RMP
     
  11. Does anyone have some detail on the funeral arrangements for our two Royal Engineers? Perhaps a good turnout would tell their killers something.
