My Dad – Flight Lieutenant Peter Sinclair ~ Royal Canadian Air Force ~ World War 2
I really like this musical rendition of “In Flanders Fields” ~ a poem written during the First World War by Canadian Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae.
I think almost all Canadian children memorize this poem in school.
Today we will gather at the cenotaph outside our church. We will wear a poppy.
The little group of veterans will be there – even though every year their numbers dwindle. But they will march and stand at attention as we sing “O Canada” and “God Save The Queen”.
We will lay our wreaths at the foot of the monument.
In silence, we will stand with bowed heads
and we will remember.
