Take down his coat,
Pick up his things,
The scribbled note,
The tunic with wings;
The book, cricket pads and bat
And his beloved mis-shapen hat.
Auction his car,
Attend to his debts,
And then there are
His several pets.
The tortoise, collie dog and bird,
Whose cheerful chirp is now unheard.
No more kissing
And popsies thrilled;
He's reported 'Missing,Believe Killed',
He had no ribbons, won no fame;
We'll toast his memory just the same.
Vernon Noble R.A.F. Linton-on-Ouse 1941
Motto: "A Flumine Impugnamus" - "From the mighty river we strike"
At the going down of the sun, and in the morning we will remember
them. - Laurence
