Remembrance Sunday

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.
