We Will Remember Them
November 11th

Canadian National War Memorial in Ottawa

They shall not grow old as we who are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,

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 falling 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.

-- John McCrae

There are occasionally responses to this page. Unfortunately some of them were lost before being added to the following page: We Will Remember Them: Responses. You can send me your comments on Remembrance Day and what it means to you to and I will endeavour to post as soon as possible.

Some Very Special Links

Wherever you are on Remembrance Day, when the clock climbs to the eleventh hour, would you please stop what you're doing and spare two minutes of silence in respect for the sacrifices made on our behalf by brave Canadian men and women so that we may indeed live free in this blessed land.

* This page dedicated to the memory of Willard Lamie who served with my Dad in the RCNVR in WWII and who died at sea in a torpoedo attack.
