[英伦广角] 【整理】2010-08-22 日本战败65周年祭奠

提高英语听力能力 找对方法很重要!
The numbers nowadays are small but the sacrifice remains enormous.
Veterans of the bitter the war in the Far East came to Cenotaph to remember 65 years after Japan surrendered to the might of the atomic bomb, the nation, too, paid its respects.
  “When you go home, tell them of us and say: for your tomorrow, we go are today. They shall not grow old as we that are left grow old. Age shall not worry them nor the years condemn.”
“After going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them.”
The War of Japan cost 30,000 British and Commonwealth lives, a further 12 and a half men thousand died in prison war camps from beatings, disease and starvation.
Now, aged 91, Alf Locar, was a prisoner for 3 years, ”Japanese, say a nature…if they told you don't.. it, I was breaking the Japanese, they did not know what I was saying so i used a stick to draw a word and sentense here.”
The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall also attended today’s ceremony. David Cameron laid a wreath on behalf of the governments.
Also, there was Frank Thake, he served a board hospital ship treating liberated prisoners of war, many barely alive.
“With full-grown men, you pick up in horror. One half, really.  Some of them are disgusting. It was just horrible to watch and come out. When we first met, we brought a first low-opposed swap in malaysia. And it was the worst scene I have seen.”
With many veterans now in their 90s, the numbers able to attend the commemoration like these, are slowly dwindling. When their memories may  slightly fade with age, the pride in their part in the so-called forgotten war remains strong as ever.
