In Memoriam

Merchant Navy 1939-1945

No cross marks the place where now we lie
What happened is known but to us
You asked, and we gave our lives to protect
Our land from the enemy curse
No Flanders Field where poppies blow;
No Gleaming Crosses, row on row;
No Unnamed Tomb for all to see
And pause -- and wonder who we might be
The Sailorsí Valhalla is where we lie
On the ocean bed, watching ships pass by
Sailing in safety now thruí the waves
Often right over our sea-locked graves
We ask you just to remember us.
