Remembering the Fallen

This morning, I spent a short while in the company of the Anglican community close to my father's home, while they conducted a short memorial service on  the occasion of the 100th. anniversary of the First World War. The war memorial stands in the churchyard.

The service consisted of a few prayers, a scriptural reading, and reading of the names of the known war dead of the parish (considerably more names than those that appear on the memorial). For their souls and those of all who died in the World Wars:-
Requiem aeternum dona eis, Domine,
Et lux perpetua luceat eis:
Requiescant in pace.
