In Flanders fields the poppies blow

3 posts in this topic

Plans are underway to recreate the famous Flanders fields of poppies to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War - in England.

The Belgian battlefields, which saw some of the conflict's bloodiest fighting, were immortalised in Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae's iconic war poem.

And the image of fields strewn with graves and poppies 'row on row' became an international symbol of remembrance for all those who died.

That struck me as really poetic, Spud.
