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.

You were lucky Dib... the German government tried to incite Mexico to attack the US in order to try and make sure the US was busy at home and reduce their ability to enter the war in Europe. The Mexican government had the sense to realise that the promised German support would be worthless and the result would be a disaster for Mexico, and stayed out of it. Furthermore the whole thing backfired on Germany, because Britain found out about it and told the US what they were up to, which brought the US into the war all the quicker.

The nations which were involved lost millions of men and millions more were crippled for life, in four years of quite unimaginable horror. (I have tried to imagine it - it simply can't be done.) It is incredible what the troops went through - and how they stood up to it, reading the accounts written by the men in the trenches it's amazing how they kept their spirits up and didn't all go mad.

Since then the anniversary of the Armistice has been the day on which we remember and honour the fallen, not only of that war but of all the other wars we have been involved in. The verse above is from "For the Fallen" by Laurence Binyon and is the traditional verse used for Remembrance services. It is a tremendously powerful and poignant verse Cry

This day has rolled round once again, and it would seem appropriate to bump this thread with a link to the Hot Shots calendar as it is in aid of those injured in service.

Yes, let's remember those who died. And let's not abuse the poppy as a way to rub noses against us Irish, and the Brits did for so many years here.
I'm Irish, and I'd have no problem wearing a poppy, if I wasn't judged as being a Brit for it.
The Irish fought and died too, but only cause they couldn't get jobs as Nationalist wernt given any good jobs, they either joined a war to provide money for their family, Or get nothing. So when they joined the war, and fought for the Brits, they were moved in first, with say Welsh, Scottish, and used as bodybags to protect the English.

So let's remember the day as an end to all world wars, and not to simply rub noses up against Irish.
