rajan jolly, Thank you so much for stopping by. There are so many lost soldiers from so many wars. Thanks you for the vote and share.

Beautiful haiku. So many of our brave soldiers are lost in foreign lands never to be found again or known what happened to them. Very poignant!

Voted up, beautiful and shared.

Sad, but sometimes this happens during wars. My German girlfriend never did know what happened to her father during World War 2. I saw a memorial in the town of Herrenberg, Germany (her home town) where her father's name and a bunch of other names were inscribed. The towns people never knew what happened to all of them. This Aussie soldier was a handsome young man. You have memorialized him with your haiku poetry. Up and sharing.

He is lovely. It is a shame no one seems to know who he is. Hope you find your granddad.

Thanks, for stopping by.

Hi, he is so lovely, such a shame that he can't be found out who he was, its very close to my heart at the moment because I am trying to find my long lost grandad that came from Canada, I have just one old photo and don't know his name either! cheers nell
