Last night's Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall included clips from the Battles of Imphal and Kohima 75 years ago. 113 Squadron, of which my father was a member, supported the troops from the air.
The Kohima Epitaph, at the bottom of Garrison Hill, site of one of the bloodiest battles in World War II, was read out during the televised service:
'When You Go Home, Tell Them of Us and Say,
For Your Tomorrow, We Gave Our Today.'
Few words, many lives. Lest we forget.
