"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them."
[4th verse of the poem "For The Fallen" by Laurence Binyon].
"When you go home, tell them of us and say
For their tomorrow, we gave our today."
[John Maxwell Edmonds - Epitaph in the War Cemetery in Kohima which commemorates the fallen of the Battle of Kohima in April 1944.]

Tansley is recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Tanslege. Tan means a branch of a valley. Lega/leah means a
wood/glade. So Tansley is the wooded glade in the branch of a valley. [ack. Denys Gaskell]
