They Shall Not Grow Old

They went with songs to the battle, they were young, 
Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow. 
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted; 
They fell with their faces to the foe.
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.
Laurence Binyon

They Shall Not Grow Old (2018) is out on Blu-ray and I am picking up a copy this weekend.  I did not have an opportunity to see it in its theatrical release, and I am eager to see Peter Jackson’s film necromancy of World War I soldiers.
