Laurence Binyon was an English poet. He was born in Lancaster in 1869 and died in 1943.

In 1914, he wrote 'For the Fallen' whilst he was working at the British Museum.
He later travelled to France and helped wounded soldiers as a volunteer at a British hospital.
The poem's fourth verse is known as 'Ode of Remembrance' and remembered around the world.
The ode is often carved into war monuments and spoken at remembrance services.

"They shall grow not old,
as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them,
nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun,
and in the morning
We will remember them."

Running time - 9 mins.
