While we have endeavored to be as
correct as humanly possible, there could be some typographical errors.
Greater love hath no man than this that a man lay down his life for his
friends.Ē John XV. 13
Oh lads, dear lads, who were loyal and true,
The worst of the fight was borne by you;
So the word shall go to the cottage and hall,
Our battle are won by the men that fall.
When peace dawns over the countryside
Our thanks shall be to the lads that died,
Oh quite hearts, can you hear us tell
How peace was won by the men that fell.
- Laurence Housman
