England at Bay

By D.S. MacColl
The War Illustrated, Volume 3, No. 54, Page 280, September 13, 1940.

Outnumbered, trapped, "invaded", unbefriended,
She conquered in the air
Yet one more post of empire, and transcended
The seas, her ancient share;
By sons from near and far redeemed anew,
By hundreds against myriads defended,
"So many by so few."
