They Sleep Beyond Ulster’s Foam

They mingle not with their laughing comrades again/They sit no more at familiar tables of home/They have no lot in our labour of the day-time/They sleep beyond Ulster’s [originally, England’s] foam.” New boards with verses from Laurence Binyon’s For The Fallen and a new poppy gate have been added to the WWI memorial garden in Mount Vernon (see the wide shot, below). Three details of the metalworks are also included, showing scenes from the conflict and a map of the area around Messines (photoshopped in red).
