Remember Them Who Gave Their All

“It is not for glory or riches that we fight but for our people” (based on the Declaration Of Arbroath; see e.g. UDA 3rd Battalion) and “At the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them.” are familiar but “As poppy petals gently fall/Remember them who gave their all” here makes a very infrequent appearance. It comes from The UDR Soldier, by John Potter. The mural and stone thus link together the 36th (Ulster) Division of WWI, the UDR (1970-1992), and ‘D’ Company of the North Down Red Hand Commando.
