Remembrance Day 2015

11 November 2015

 

 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 field.
 
 
  

A large Remembrance Day poppy will light up the windows of the top floors of Lovett Tower in Woden over the next few days to honour the more than 102,000 Australian service personnel who have died in wars and armed conflicts.
