To be a Marine


To Be a Marine

A marine is known for his valour

Across the oceans wide

A marine is known for his honour

Someone to trust at your side

A marine will lead through fire

To rescue waifs and strays

A marine will never retire

A marine ‘til the end of his days

So if you wish to aspire

To wear the Green Beret

Come show us your desire

And we’ll make your life that day.


D Angood  19 September 2017.


This poem was written by the brother of the late Roger William Angood 45 Commando. It is a tribute not just to him, but to all. Please read his obituary here.
