“When you go home, tell them of us and say, ‘For your tomorrow, we gave our today‘“

"When you go house, tell them of us and also say, ‘For your tomorrow, we offered our today’” is a armed forces saying (well-known on Memorial Day) that has been published on many type of imeras. Authorship and the specific wording are both unspecific. “Here is one (epitaph—ed.) from a British graveyard in France,” many type of newsfiles published on August 24, 1918: “When you go residence. tell them of us and also say, ‘For your tomorrow they provided their this day.’” “When you go house, tell them of us, and say for their Tomorrow, we have actually offered our Today” is the variation that was published in many newsfiles in October 1918. “EPITAPHS FOR THE SLAIN (For a British graveyard in France) When you go residence, tell them of us and say: For your to-morrow, these provided their to-day” was printed in the book The Great War in Verse and also Pclimbed (1919), edited by James Elgin Wetherell. The book Inscriptions Suggested for War Memorials (1919) by Cecil Harcourt Smith has the same create, and also credits English poet John Maxwell Edmonds (1875-1958). It is unparticular if Edmonds was inspired by the epitaph composed by Simonides to honor the Spartans that dropped at the Battle of Thermopylae in 480 BC. “When you go residence, tell them of us and say, For your tomorrow, we provided our today” is the develop that was provided for the memorial epitaph of the Battle of Kohima (1944). “They provided their tomorrow for our today” and “They gave their tomorrows for our todays” are comparable sayings. Wikipedia: Battle of Kohima The Battle of Kohima (together with the linked Battle of Imphal) verified the turning suggest of the Japanese U-Go offensive into India in 1944 throughout the Second World War of 1939-1945. The battle took location in 3 stages from 4 April to 22 June 1944 around the tvery own of Kohima, the capital of Nagaland in northeast India.(...)Memorial The War Cemetery in Kohima of 1,420 Allied war dead is maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. The cemetery lies on the slopes of Garrichild Hill, in what was as soon as the Deputy Commissioner’s tennis court. The epitaph carved on the memorial of the second British Division in the cemetery has actually end up being world-famed as the Kohima Epitaph. It reads: When you go residence, tell them of us and also say,For your tomorrow, we provided our today The verse is attributed to John Maxwell Edmonds (1875–1958), and is thshould have been inspired by the epitaph written by Simonides to honour the Spartans that fell at the Battle of Thermopylae in 480 BC. Wikipedia: John Maxwell Edmonds John Maxwell Edmonds (21 January 1875 – 18 March 1958) was an English classicist, poet, and dramatist who is significant as the author of celebrated epitaphs.(...)EpitaphsEdmonds is credited with authorship of a renowned epitaph in the War Cemetery in Kohima which commemoprices the fallen of the Battle of Kohima in April 1944.

As one epitaph in France reads: “When you go residence, tell them of us, and also say,For their Tomorrow, we have actually given our Today.” 19 August 1995, The Times (London, UK), “Guilty or shameful?” by Philip Howard, pg. 1:The epitaph for the Allied dead at Kohima captured that laconic simplicity, in which classical understatement is even more moving than sentimental gush. The Times published it again last week: When you go residence, tell them of us and say For your tomorrow these offered their this particular day. This has actually the monolithic power of Simonides’ untranslatable epitaph on the Spartan dead while conserving civilisation at Thermopylae: Go tell the Spartans, tourist coaching by, That here obedient to their words we lie. Like Japanese, shame-culture Spartans were expected to commit hara-kiri rather than surrender. As usual on military memorials, gravestones and also company sheets, The Times publimelted the epitaph wrong and without attribution, as it is carved on the Kohima memorial. The correct version, initially publiburned in The Times, goes: “For your tomorrows these provided their today”. This plural is more powerful, because the brief resides of the heroes won succeeding futures for generations of survivors. Some say this epitaph is so shame-agedly good that it should have been written by Simonides, or somebody else from the Greek Anthology. Others attribute it to Housmale but it is a bit dry for him. It remained in reality composed by John Edmonds, a shy classical scholar that went as much as Jesus College, Cambridge, in 1894, and devoted his life until his fatality in 1958 to scholarship, teaching Classics at Girton and Newnham, and also creating majestic epitaphs publiburned in The Times.
