44 Their Name Liveth For Evermore

The words 'Their Name Liveth For Evermore' on Britain's cenotaphs is due to the scribe of Rudyard Kipling.

Kipling's poem Recessional also includes the infamous words 'Lest We Forget'. You may well be surprised what he was alluding to when he inked the ode.


Kipling also created other iconic memorial wording, including 'Known Unto God'.

Many travel companies offer battlefield tours in Belgium and France, but it's easy enough to do it on your own with a quality guidebook, map and brochures from the local tourist office.
