Another one laid to rest a century on
 
In the local news this morning - the remains of a soldier from the local regiment found in Belgium. His buttons and badge identified the regiment but we'll probably never know who he was. France and Flanders still giving up its dead.

:salute:
Lay me doon in the caul caul groon
Whaur afore monie mair huv gaun
Lay me doon in the caul caul groon
Whaur afore monie mair huv gaun
When they come a wull staun ma groon
Staun ma groon al nae be afraid
Thoughts awe hame tak awa ma fear
Sweat an bluid hide ma veil awe tears
Ains a year say a prayer faur me
Close yir een an remember me
Nair mair shall a see the sun
For a fell tae a Germans gun
Lay me doon in the caul caul groon
Whaur afore monie mair huv gaun
Lay me doon in the caul caul groon
Whaur afore monie mair huv gaun
Whaur afore monie mair huv gaun

Well given that I said local news which do you think? He was from the Worcestershire regiment.
