EDITORS COMMENTS
Commemorating the Heroes of World War I: A Call to Wear a Flanders Poppy on Remembrance Day, 11th November 1927 This evocative leaflet, dated 11th November 1927, is a poignant reminder of the enduring impact of World War I on the British population. The British Legion Appeals Department, located at 26 Eccleston Square, London, SW1, issued this call to action to commemorate the sacrifices made by the brave men and women who served in the war. The central image of the leaflet features a poppy, a symbol of remembrance and hope, against a backdrop of commemorative art. The poppy, which became synonymous with the war due to the vivid red poppies that bloomed in the fields of Flanders, Belgium, where much of the fighting took place, was adopted as a symbol of remembrance by the poet John McCrae in his poem "In Flanders Fields." The text of the leaflet urges readers to "Wear a Flanders Poppy" on Remembrance Day as a mark of respect and gratitude for those who gave their lives in the service of their country. The poppy was not only a symbol of remembrance but also a practical way to support the British Legion's efforts to assist veterans and their families. The leaflet's historical significance lies in its role as a reminder of the enduring impact of World War I on the British people and the importance of remembering the sacrifices made by those who served. The poppy remains a powerful symbol of remembrance and hope, and wearing one on Remembrance Day continues to be a meaningful way to honor the memories of those who served and sacrificed in the war.
