line 15: "Theirs but to do & die," should this have a colon at the end? "Theirs but to do & die:" in SOME versions? i wouldnt want to edit without discussion —unsigned comment by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 20:52, 7 June 2007.

The text of this poem has been verified against "The Complete Poetical Works of Tennyson" ed. Frederick Page (pub. Oxford University Press, 1953).--Poetlister 22:01, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
- Just to emphasise: the odd-looking "their's" is correct per the edition I checked against and Christopher Ricks' edition.--Poetlister 22:07, 4 July 2008 (UTC)
