11/11

They went with songs to the battle, 
They were young.
Straight of limb, true of eyes, 
Steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end 
Against odds uncounted,
They fell with their faces to the foe.

Echoing afresh a thought from a few years ago - for all we are a hobby that seeks to recreate war, I remain profoundly glad and impressed that in general we do so to understand it, not pointlessly glorify it.
St John the Evangelist Church in Slimbridge, 2018
