Today, we honour the bravery of the fallen men and women who have served and devoted themselves to our countries during times of war and conflict. We pay homage to their service, remember their sacrifice, reflect and express gratitude for their courage and acknowledge that it is incumbent on us to keep their memories alive and preserve the peace they fought so hard to achieve.
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.
— Laurence Binyon’s “Ode of Remembrance”
