I know I'm a bit early with this for Remembrance day, but i thought it worth posting early.
I don't know who the author is, but truer words Ive not heard.

There are no roses on sailors graves,
Nor wreaths upon the storm tossed waves,
No last posts from Royal band,
So far away from their native land,
No Heartbroken words carved in stone,
Just shipmates bodies there alone,
The only tributes are the seagulls sweeps,
And a teardrop when a loved one weeps.

Quoted From :-
Royal National Lifeboat Institution.

In memory of
Jeff Sullivan, (Slugger) aged 17, died at sea aboard the MV Iron Ore.( Appendicitis)
Jeff Hudd, Aged 18, killed in Portugal. Trying to break up a fight and was stabbed.

LEST WE FORGET
Geoff.
