Syston lads remembered: step- brothers paying the ultimate sacrifice

Up the Line

Serre Road Cemetery No. 1, Somme.

Up the line

Standing in rows

A whistle blows.
Loved ones weeping.
In the fields
Poppies grow,
Where friends and foe
Are sleeping.
In our hearts
We hold them dear
Who knew no fear.
Memoria keeping.
We will remember them.
