The Last Post from home

The words well received

Trenches dug in below

With weary hands the soldier reads

He’s one of our boys, you know?

A time to reflect for loved and lost

Those who gave there All

Poppies Red, Blood that’s shed

Death lurks beneath the dawn,

Now at peace the soldier rests

The Last post sounds the call.

Forever in debt,

Lest we forget

The turmoil they faced at war

As lanterns they shine

The remembrance shrine

Proud of them all we toast

To Australia’s heroes men and women

Stationed at their Last Post
