Students from Holne Chase Primary School have been writing poems to mark Remembrance Day today.

This is one of them, entitled You Died In 1916.

Was your death quick and clean?

Was your death slow and painful?

Did you think the war will end wars?

Well you were wrong my pal!

A lot of people probably loved you.

Did you have memories of your family?

Did they have memories of you?

I hope you sleep in peace my pal

We will never forget you.

The poppies are growing and the memories are flowing.

We respect our dead.
