A re-post in remembrance of ‘Moff’ a true hero.
And for all those who gave their life in service. Always only a thought away.
Roll Of Honour
A brave young trooper proudly stood... and would again if he only could
Upon the hot and shifting sands, alongside his comrades as they manned
Their post, as proud a man could be; as all around could plainly see.
Not all looked on with pride that day... A cowardly enemy there did’st hide
Alas this brave trooper’s time had come, his life its course, was finally run
Across the sands of time we mourned, another trooper’s day had dawned.
As now amongst the ranks so proud, he swells the heavenly angelic crowd
Of service men and women too, who stand erect so proud and true.
We salute each brave and gallant soul... Names etched eternally on our ‘Hero’s Roll’
In memory of Lance Corporal Nigel ‘Moff’ Moffett 12/12/80 - 30/05/09
