In time for the memorial weekend (11th Nov) I thought I would share this. Beautiful music from Band of Brothers performed by Katherine Jenkins “Requiem for a Soldier” . Moving Lyrics below. Thank you to all to the servicemen – They  sacrified their today, so we could have our tomorrow. RIP

Lyrics:

Requiem for a Soldier

You never lived to see
What you gave to me
One shining dream of hope and love
Life and liberty

With a host of brave unknown Soldiers
For your company, you will live forever
Here in our memory

In fields of sacrifice
Heroes paid the price
Young men who died for old men’s wars
Gone to paradise

We are all one great band of brothers
And one day you’ll see we can live together
When all the world is free

I wish you’d lived to see
All you gave to me
Your shining dream of hope and love
Life and liberty

We are all one great band of brothers
And one day you’ll see – we can live together
When all the world is free

Also I found this. This really got my lip going : Hymn to the fallen – old proud men with their medals – how proud I am of them.

Something for the British :

Saving Private Ryan (1998)

Everyone in the Army has seen this and almost everyone has it in their DVD collection. Absolutely amazing film that really captures the grit and grim of the war . I broke into tears at the end of the film with  “tell me  I’ve lead a good life”. A truly moving piece of cinema that will  be seen by many future generations. As most of you know,  Tom Hanks and Spielberg later went on to make Band of Brothers and The Pacific.

Memorable film quote  “Earn this”

ManCry star rating ********** 10/10

**Spoilers** Here’s the final battle scene with the”earn this” quote

and “tell me I’ve led a good life” ending to the film. Literally wiped tears away watching this (again).

Unbelievable soundtrack : Enjoy!
