at the 11th hour, on the 11th day, of the 11th month of 1918
the guns fell silent
The Third Battle of Ypres, also called the Battle of Passchendaele, was another of the horrific meat-grinders fought in Flanders Fields during the Great War.
In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
between the crosses row on row
In England today is Remembrance Sunday, many of us will wear a poppy, and remember the 887,888 dead from the United Kingdom and her then Colonies.
This song is a poignant reminder of those days.
