    It will Remembrance Day here in Canada ( November 11), Lest we Forget those that Served in the Wars. My Dad was with the Royal Canadian Air Force ( RCAF ) Ground Staff for WWII.

    This Poppy I posted is a 1970's Vintage Canadian Felt Poppy to wear on your Jacket. This one has the *GREEN* felt center whereas the newer ones have a *BLACK* felt center. From around the 1970's era. I just always had kept a few and now down the Road when they changed the center color. Who knew -- it now became a Collectible.....But to me....being able to say My father served for the War is a Proud thing!!

    Thanks DAD..... + RIP +

    ==========================

    In Flanders Fields ---- by John McCrae, May 1915

    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.

    =====================================

      Rose, I love the post and the poem. My oldest Son is serving in the US Army. We're proud of him, but worry about him being deployed. Thank you to all the veterans out there!!

      Great post rose. I'm proud of all who served for us. Thanks to all of them. Sadly only the dead have seen the end of wars. God bless them.
