A remembrance song written by a Dorset man will be heard around the world this Sunday.

72 year old Ron wrote the lyrics to the piece, the music was added by Kevin Morgan from the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra.


You can listen to the song HERE:


Lest we forget


Lest we forget,

Lest we forget,

The boy who died in the morning sun,

The girl who died from a sniper’s gun,

All those who stood and refused to run,

Lest we forget,

No! We must never forget,

No! We must never forget,

No! We must never forget,

We must never forget.

A flag draped coffin in the morning rain,

An unsung hero is home again,

Wreaths of poppies, pride and tears

The price of war paid with their lost years

They died with honour in some foreign land,

In fields of mud and hills of sand

They fought and died for our liberty,

May they live forever in our memory.


A loved one lost and millions more,

In their land of birth or some foreign shore,

A family’s grief for theirs who died

Knows no frontier or a country’s pride.

Those lost at sea, on land or sky

Lie silent as their loved ones cry,

Remembered now and for ever more,

May their sacrifice bring an end to war.
