The Unknown Sailor

By sherlob    
A week of remembrance for those lost through military service: following from yesterdays post...

Out of a fired ship, which by no way
But drowning could be rescued from the flame,
Some men leap'd forth, and ever as they came
Near the foes' ships, did by their shot decay;
So all were lost, which in the ship were found,
They in the sea being burnt, they in the burnt ship drown'd.

John Donne

A very stark image which is appropriate for the circumstances.

Good to see the Senior Service remembered Adam. We subconsciously tend to think mainly of the land armies at this time.
