Inscription.  "They went with songs to battle, they were young
straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.

They were staunch to the end against odds
uncounted. They fell with their faces to the foe.

They shall not grow old as we 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."
— Lawrence Binyon
