    Default Poppy

    Poppy
    In Flanders' Fields
    John McCrae, 1915

    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 dawn, 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.

    Please think of all of our Brothers and Sisters of all faiths and creeds who have given their LIFE in support of this Nation..

    WE SHALL NOT FORGET THEM

    This year please please try to get out and donate for a Poppy -- we are finding that there are fewer and fewer people willing to spend time collecting on behalf of the RBL

    Well, well said all of the above - I can't adequately add to it.

    Currently in Manila and being US influenced they have no concept of this - everyone asks me why I wear a poppy in my lapel. The answer and explanation moves them.

    Mines on order, it's for all in my eyes, from the lads of WW1 through to the guy who bought it in Afgh or Iraq last week.

    This tradition must never die, the future depends on it, it reminds ppl of what it represents, where as it would be forgotten.
