And through some mooned Valhalla there will pass
battalions and battalions, scarred from hell;
The unreturning army that was youth;
The legions who have suffered and are dust.
For Remembrance Sunday in aid of the Forces charity Combat Stress
REMEMBERING THE BRAVE
Devised & Directed by Emma King-Farlow
St Marys Church, Barnes - Sunday 13th November 2011 at 8pm
An evening of poetry, prose, music and drama honouring the bravery and sacrifice of Britain's fighting men and women over the centuries.
All proceeds donated to Combat Stress: the UK's leading military charity specialising in the care of Veterans' mental health.
"Yesterday evening was profoundly moving for all of us who watched. We thought people who missed it, really missed something very well worth seeing. A big thank you to all of you, and we look forward to the next time."
"I just wanted to say how much Chris and I enjoyed yet another wonderful and moving performance by Shadow Road Productions. We are so very fortunate in Barnes to have such exceptional local talent."
"Kipling's Tommy is my favourite piece of war poetry and the boys' interpretation was the best version I have ever heard. Finally someone actually got the point. Well done."
"A massive well done for putting on such a great evening. I couldn't fault it! As we left all I could hear was people saying 'Wasn't that marvellous' and 'That was excellent'. So, a triumph! Well done again to you and all involved with Sunday."
