World War 1 - Wall of Honour

This international project is created in memory of all people, civilian and soldiers, who lost their lives in World War 1 between 1914 and 1918.

For the fallen

They went with songs to the battle, they were young. Straight of limb, true of eyes, steady and aglow. They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted, They fell with their faces to the foe.

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.

by Laurence Binyon.
