The animation below gives a quick summary of how the poppy became our symbol of Remembrance.

In Flanders Fields, John McCrae

In Flanders' fields


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.

See below, a sample of our books and Dvds that can be found on the Heritage Library Catalogue.
