Lest We Forget

At 11am on November 11th each year we commemorate Remembrance Day. Our school holds a special ceremony complete with the Last Post played on a bugle  by one of our parents and the reading of the solemn poem “In Flanders Fields”. My contribution will be to take photos, preserving the occasion in time. The above photos were taken  by my husband in Cambridge, UK in June 2011. I am posting them today to show our students the beauty of the red poppies which grow wild in the fields  and cemeteries of the UK and Europe.We will proudly wear  the RSL’s fundraising poppies sold by the students of Mrs Lewis’s Grade three class, “Lest We Forget”.
