He took his great granddad’s watch from the drawer and looked at it one last time. He wore it on his wedding, a pocket silver watch from 1919, with a silver chain and a silver medal at the end. The medal was won by his great granddad from rugby and it still has the encryption of his name and the year. Ah, great legacy! When the son got married six years ago, he passed this silver watch to the son. There was a feeling of pride and loyalty when he saw his son wore it on his wedding.

The son now has it

Sing a song of praise for these men

Generously with love

Scribbled pages they left by then

Gaze up they sang above

Generously giving their lives

Remember their children and wives

Generously give
