They have no grave but the cruel sea, 

No flowers lay at their head.

A rusting hulk is their tombstone,

Afast on the ocean bed.

They shall grow not old, as we who 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 shall remember them.

"Lest we forget"
