In Memoriam

As with other units of the Defence Forces, many members of 2 Field Artillery Regiment have gone on to their eternal rest.  This page is dedicated to their memory.

They went with songs to the battle, they were young.
Straight of limb, true of eyes, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,
They fell with their faces to the foe.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

Rest in Peace

Farewell by Nigel Marcus
