Roll of Honour

 

 

 

 In 2006 the above memorial was dedicated at Carver Barracks to honour those who have died whilst serving with Royal Engineers Bomb Disposal/Explosive Ordnance Disposal Units.

 

Sadly since this dedication five more names have been added to the Roll.

 

The link below will take you to the Roll, this is much more than just a list of names as you will see.

 

(Work still in progress  aproximately half added)

Corps Collect

 

O God, whose righteousness is exceeding glorious,

may it please thee to send out thy light and thy truth so lead us

Thy servant of the Corps of Royal Engineers

and those involved in the clearance of explosive ordnance

that everywhere we may be enabled to do our duty,

and so glorify thee, our father in heaven,

for the sake of thy son, Jesus Christ, our lord, Amen.
 We will remember them.

 

  

Do Not Stand at my Grave and Weep.

 

 Do not stand at my grave and weep  

 I am not there i do not sleep

 I am the thousand winds that blow

 I am the diamond glints on snow

 I am the sunlight on ripened grain

 I am the gentle autumanal rain

 When you wake in the morning hush

 I am the soft uplifting rush

 Of quiet birds in circled flight

 I am the stars that shine at night

 Do not stand at my grave and cry

 I am not there I did not die.
