Remembrance Day, at the 11th hour on the 11th day in the 11th month…
British poet and art critic Laurence Binyon (1869-1943) worked at the British Museum (where he developed an expertise in Chinese and Japanese art) before going to war and penning these immortal words…
“They shall grow not 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.”
For The Fallen (1914)
The Kranji War Memorial, Singapore, is dedicated to the memory of the allied servicemen and servicewomen, who fought against the Japanese invading forces during WWII.
