The Remembrance Day poem in a translation in Manx Gaelic:

Cha jig adsyn dy ve shenn, myr nee shinyn ta er mayrn cheet dy ve shenn. 
Cha jean eash deinys, ny ny bleeantyn deyrey y chur orroo. 
Ec lhie ny greiney as ayns y voghrey 
Nee mayd cooinaghtyn orroo.

The translation and reading of this extract from 'For the Fallen' by Robert Laurence Binyon is made by Robert Corteen Carswell RBV.

The music is the traditional Manx song, 'Geay jeh'n aer', performed by Ruth Keggin.
