Presentation Transcript

In Flanders Fields the poppies blowBetween the crosses, row on row,That mark our place; and in the skyThe larks, still bravely singing flyScarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days agoWe 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 failing hands we throwThe torch, be yours to hold it high.If ye break faith with us who dieWe shall not sleep, though poppies growIn Flanders fields

The poem was written by a Canadian - John McCrae, a doctor and teacher, who served in both the South African War and the First World War.


Frederick Grant Banting was born on November 14, 1891, at Alliston, Ont., Canada. In 1916 he took his M.B. degree and at once joined the Canadian Army Medical Corps, and served, during the First World War, in France. In 1919, he was awarded the Military Cross for heroism under fire.

What is Remembrance Day?

November 11th is internationally recognized as Remembrance Day.

At 11am women, men and children hold a two minute silence to remember the millions who have died in war.

The silence is usually observed at war memorials, cenotaphs and religious services and shopping centres throughout the country.


Why hold a two minute silence?

The first two minute silence was held on 11 November 1919, when King George V asked the public to observe a silence at 11am.

This was one year after the end of World War 1. He made the request so "the thoughts of everyone may be concentrated on reverent remembrance of the glorious dead".


Dear God,

We pray for all of the victims of war. We pray for peace in our world.
