Rememberance quotes

I don't have the source but didn't Ataturk say something very similar just after WW1 When the allies were sorting out Military Graveyards Worldwide?
Not as far as I am aware. He came to power on this day (29 October) in 1923.

Atatürk was a brutal secularist moderniser. But he was very well read and a prolific author and a pretty good statesman who died of cirrhosis of the liver. General Sir Ian Hamilton, his nemesis in the Dardanelles Campaign, was the chief mourner amongst diplomats and leaders at his funeral in 1938.

Does the same apply to the British War Graves in Basra? Gen question.
 
"They will never be able to make us do it again another day. That would be to misunderstand the cost of our effort. They will have to resort to those who have not lived out these days."

- Sous-Lieutenant Raymond Joubert - 11th Company, 3rd Battalion, 151e Régiment d'Infanterie, who was killed in the Verdun sector in 1917.

This particular short refrain, off the cuff too I believe, is quintessentially British and delivers a final line that should put the wind up any Johnny Foreigner who would dare to tackle our British spunk.

Delivered back in a time when the sun would never set on the British Empire without first asking permission to do so.

Getting a bit dusty now, sorry.
