      Beautiful haiku. So many of our brave soldiers are lost in foreign lands never to be found again or known what happened to them. Very poignant!

      Voted up, beautiful and shared.

      Sad, but sometimes this happens during wars. My German girlfriend never did know what happened to her father during World War 2. I saw a memorial in the town of Herrenberg, Germany (her home town) where her father's name and a bunch of other names were inscribed. The towns people never knew what happened to all of them. This Aussie soldier was a handsome young man. You have memorialized him with your haiku poetry. Up and sharing.

      This is a lovely and well written tribute to the handsome soldier. He was someone's baby boy, someone's sweetheart, someone's hero. Very touching and thought out. Thank you. Hyphenbird

      So many Aussies have given their lives for this accursed Britain. And got little thanks for it. Poignant verse...Bob
