    Hello,
    here are some photos I took Yesterday at Montecassino.

    The ceremony was attended by the Polish Prime Minister Tusk, Prince Harry, the Governor General of New Zealand,
    many veterans, thousands of scouts and groups of reenactors.

    Regards

    Enzo

    Default Red Poppies on Monte Cassino

    Red Poppies on Monte Cassino

    D'you see those ruins on the hill top?
    There your foe hides like a rat!
    You must, you must, you must
    Grab his neck and cast him from the clouds!
    And they went, heedless of danger
    And they went, to kill and avenge
    And they went stubborn as ever,
    As always - for honour - to fight.

    Refrain:
    Red poppies on Monte Cassino
    Instead of dew, drank Polish blood.
    As the soldier crushed them in falling,
    For the anger was more potent than death.
    Years will pass and ages will roll,
    But traces of bygone days will stay,
    And the poppies on Monte Cassino
    Will be redder having quaffed Polish blood.

    They charged through fire like madmen,
    Countless were hit and fell,
    Like the cavalry at Samosierra,
    Like the men at Rokitno years ago.
    They attacked with fury and fire,
    And they got there. They climbed to the top,
    And their white and scarlet standard
    They placed on the ruins 'midst clouds.

    Refrain:
    Red Poppies on Monte Cassino.......

    D'you see this row of white crosses?
    Polish soldiers did honour there wed.
    The further you go, the higher,
    The more of such crosses you'll meet.
    This soil was won for Poland,
    Though Poland is far away,
    For Freedom is measured in crosses
    When history from justice does stray.

    Refrain:
    Red poppies on Monte Cassino
    Instead of dew, drank Polish blood.
    As the soldier crushed them in falling,
    For the anger was more potent than death.
    Years will pass and ages will roll,
    But traces of bygone days will stay,
    And the poppies on Monte Cassino
    Will be redder having quaffed Polish blood.
    I collect, therefore I am.
