In Memory of the Last Tommy, Harry Patch

Harry Patch has come,

The last of the lads

He has joined his comrades

In final repose.

Harry Patch has come

The last of a generation

Who fought for King and Country

And found death most foul.

Harry Patch has come

Forgotten by a nation

Too busy to remember why

His comrades died so long ago.
