ANZAC 2021: The Ode of Remembrance

Recited by Wayne ‘Buck’ Shelford, formerly of the RNZN, and PTE Te Mihinga Brock, Auckland Company, 3/6 RNZIR, "The Ode of Remembrance" is the fourth stanza from Laurence Binyon's poem For the Fallen. It was first published in 1914 and has been incorporated into the ritual of remembrance in many countries. In 2015, the first line in the Te reo Maori version was officially changed from “E kore ratou e koroheketia”, to “E kore ratou e kaumatuatia” to reflect the service and sacrifice of both Men and Women.
