Our Heroes fought across the oceans – Alex Menzies

Our Heroes fought across the Oceans
In honourable remembrance of our fallen comrades I have composed a Hymn. It is to the welsh tune Myfanwy and is entitled “Our Heroes fought across the oceans” Our Heroes fought cross the Oceans They died to set the Falklands Free Their sacrifice we’ll ere remember For old like us they’ll never be Their youth, their life so full of promise Their courage on the day they fell The Sun gone down and, in the morning, Our heroes stories we will tell Remember them oh Great Britannia Your sons they did not die in vain The Falklands they were liberated Our Islands free still remain “Desire the Right” is still their Motto No foreign flag will ever stain The skies above Port Stanley harbour A Union Flag will ere Reign Our Navy Army and our Airforce Our Falkland Folk still Proud and Free And all who joined the mighty Task Force And sailed across the mighty seas Join in our humble prayer of thanks now To God our Father let us cry Let those who fought and died for freedom Come home to live with thee on High Alex Menzies 16 Field Ambulance on board RFA Sir Galahad .
