"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."

~In Flanders Fields, John McCrae

We join with others this day in remembrance of service and sacrifice.

"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."

Remembrance Sunday is held in the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth as a day "to commemorate the contribution of British and Commonwealth military and civilian servicemen in the two World Wars and later conflicts". It is held on the second Sunday in November, the Sunday nearest to 11 November, Armistice Day.

The red remembrance poppy has become a familiar emblem of Remembrance Day due to the poem "In Flanders Fields".

 

These poppies bloomed across some of the worst battlefields of Flanders in World War I, and their brilliant red colour became a symbol for the blood spilled in the war.

We join with others this day in remembrance of service and sacrifice.

 

Notes from the register: This tartan has been approved and supported by The Royal British Legion, in celebration of the poppy, a symbol of remembrance and hope worn by millions of people as part of modern British life, culture and heritage. Colours: red, green and black represent the poppy and remembrance and white represents hope and the future of the living.
