Revd Catherine Hale-Heighway delivering the remembrance service 11/11/2018

It was 100 years since the end of the first world war on 11/11/2018.

They shall grow not old as we that are left grow old.

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them.

WW2 memorial


"In Flanders Fields" by John McCrae (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.

After witnessing the carnage of WWI John McCrae wrote 

In "Flanders Fields".

McCrae, a Canadian, was a medical officer in the 

Boer War and World War I.
