If ye break faith with us who die, we shall not sleep, though poppies grow in Flanders Featured 26 Feb 2021 Image

If ye break faith with us who die, we shall not sleep, though poppies grow in Flanders

If ye break faith with us who die, we shall not sleep, though poppies grow in Flanders fields. The mother, widow and little daughter of a British soldier who died early in World War One visit his grave on the Western Front. The mother reverently laid upon it the medals, which, had he lived, would have been awarded him. The widow and little daughter are carrying bunches of poppies. As signifying remembrance, this flower is the emblem of Poppy Day, kept on Armistice Day. Through the efforts of the British Legion and Earl Haig's Appeal for ex-Servicemen, poppies are on sale everywhere, to raise funds to aid those who survived the war broken and poor. Date: 1921
