"Above all let us salute the glorious dead who sleep in the earth of France. Faithfully, piously, jealously, we shall guard them and keep their memory alive, because to us they are a testimony and a pledge. They fell in a foreign land - a far distant one for many of them - but they affirmed that the peoples beyond the sea came to fight side by side with us in the defence of liberty and civilization. If our sons in the generations to come should ever forget this, the dead will rise to recall to them this common duty. - Marshal Foch, at the Guildhall, 30th July 1919."
