Known Unto God

“Known Unto God” There is some comfort in these words as they are now written on numerous headstones throughout France where in the First World War it was impossible to identify the millions of dead in the battlefields on France.  Whilst doing research for my project Once Lost, Never Forgotten  I have discovered that the words were chosen by the English Poet Rudyard Kipling who lost a son in the early years of the War and was appointed to the Imperial War Graves Commission as a literary advisor. He also chose the words for Lutyen’s Stone Of Remembrance – “Their Name Liveth For Evermore”. Research is from the book ‘Remembering Fromelles”‘ CWGC Publishing.
