lest we forget

GlescaPals tribute to 'oor forces'
 
 
... as the webmaister of this website I am able to pay tribute to our armed forces ..I hope in some small way it helps keep their memory alive and brings some comfort to pals at home and faraway.

.. .


They shall not grow old as we who 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.

 We are looking for any memorabilia, photographs, letters, daybooks, medals

 A chance to get your family's story told and remembered.

Scottish-  Sgt.Mackenzie
Lay me doon in the caul caul groon
Whaur afore monie mair huv gaun
Lay me doon in the caul caul groon
Whaur afore monie mair huv gaun

When they come a wull staun ma groon
Staun ma groon al nae be afraid

Thoughts awe hame tak awa ma fear
Sweat an bluid hide ma veil awe tears

Ains a year say a prayer faur me
Close yir een an remember me

Nair mair shall a see the sun
For a fell tae a Germans gun

Lay me doon in the caul caul groon
Whaur afore monie mair huv gaun
Lay me doon in the caul caul groon
Whaur afore monie mair huv gaun
Whaur afore monie mair huv gaun
