for We Know Not When They
Will Return

Additional Description:
Lest We Forget!

     Lest we forget the Democracy for which our men fought and died; lest we forget to strike out enemies the death blow when the lives of our mothers, fathers, wives, sweethearts, sisters and brothers are sought by the white intruder; lest we forget the vile, insidious propaganda directed against us in this the Nation's Capital by infamous Pseudo-Americans and the press; lest we forget vows and oaths made an taken to right our wrongs without fear and without compromise after the war; we do solemnly declare to lash ourselves to our gallant tars, and expire together in one common cause, fighting for a save and decent place to live in.
     Mothers and fathers, we are ready to protect you at any cost.
