In Flanders Fields

                                      "THE POEM THE POPPY AND THE MAN"

Ninety-Seven years ago, 28th January 1918, Col. John McCrae died of his illness. I think it is fitting that we, of The Royal British Legion remember Col. John McCrae for his legacy to the world and The Royal British Legion, for his poem:
                                           "In Flanders Fields"

I have copied a short history of a caring and sincere man and his reason for writing this now famous poem.

My relative is buried in the same cemetery in France, as Lt Col John McCrae.
