lest we forget

thank you all soldiers past and present in sea, land and air

thank you military families for giving us your ever so brave loved ones

thank you for freedom and continuing to fight for it

Thank you Poppy: William Ross (1894-1988); World War I (1914-1918); British Army

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.
