The soldier stands sentry over the poppies.

Are the residents just part of a smug-faced crowd?
And this lion watches over the dead with no grave and the dying day.
The Lion watches over the dead with no grave.

The harsh sea which has taken so many lives and, yet, is reborn itself everyday.

Just my little project in honour of Remembrance Sunday and every single service person who has ever given any part of their life to the defence and protection of freedom and this country. All titles are taken from poems recently posted here in honour of the day and can be found at my flickr account. For more information on the Portsmouth Naval Memorial, see the Memorials and Monuments in Portsmouth Site.

Thank you,
