We left no battlefield monuments
From one to six miles up.
No memorial field to vie
As sites for future preservation.
No sky fixed points allowing us to say
This is where Ralph and Jimmy died, or
That's where Ted was blown apart.
Decades of winds have cleansed the upper air,
Leaving nothing to show to coming generations.
But - if you were ever there, my friend -
You'll have no need for polished granite.
From the records of 150 Squadron - author unknown, can you advise further?
At the going down of the sun, and in the morning we will remember
them. - Laurence
