We Salute You

“Come and stand in memory
Of men who fought and died.
They gave their lives in Normandy,
Remember them with pride.

Solders, Airmen, Sailors
Airborne and Marines
Who in civvy life were Tailors
And men who worked machines.

British and Canadians
And men from USA.
Forces from the Commonwealth
They all were there that day.

To Juno, Sword and Utah
Beaches of renown.
Also Gold and Omaha
That’s where the ramps went down.

The battle raged in Normandy
Many lives were lost
The war must end in victory
And this must be the cost.

When my life is over
And I reach “The Other Side”
I’ll meet my friends from Normandy
And shake their hands with pride.”
