‘Lest We Forget’ – WE WILL REMEMBER THEM


11 November is a special day. Its a day we remember. Remember all those who lost their lives in battle. Remember all the fights that have been fought so we can live in the safe and free society that we have today. Remember the countless people who’s selfless act helped to ensure you can live the life that you do today. We remember them all, worldwide.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow

Between the crosses, row on row

That mark our place and in the sky

The larks still bravely singing, fly

Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead, short days ago

We lived, felt down, saw sunset glow,

Loved and were loved, and now we lie in Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe

To you from failing hands we throw

The torch; be yours to hold it high.

If ye break faith with us who die

We shall not sleep, though poppies grow in Flanders fields.

John McCrae
