The Ode

They shall grow not old, as we that are left 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.

From the poem "Ode to the Fallen" by Laurence Binyon, 1914.

Hi Tim,
you run a very fine blog! I have read in hours this morning as I prepare for a trip to Tobruk & El Alamein next week. I suppose you don't read swedish but it maybe says something anyway:,121,0,0,1,0

I also doing research for a coming book on Tobruk, 2005 I published my book El Alamein 1942, sorry also in swedish

and I spent two weeks in AWM for details in May this year.
Your blog hold a very high class, and especially your sample of photos is admirable. I've seen the price-list from AWM, and it is a horror..
Do you have a special agreement with them? When in Canberra I talked with Peter Stanley, and he recomennded Imperial War Museum for photos for my book...
I should really appreciate hear from you!
