British and Commonwealth Remembrance Service

Please Join Saint Monica and Saint James for a Service of Remembrance. All are invited as we remember World War One - at the 11th hour on the 11th Day of the 11th month. We owe so much to those who paid the ultimate price in the war to end all wars.

In Flanders Fields

BY JOHN MCCRAE

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.
