The Act of
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.
The Act of Remembrance is from the fourth verse of the poem, "For The Fallen," written by Laurence Binyon in 1914 about the outbreak of the first world war. It has been carried forward through the years as a solemn pledge to remember Veterans.
