Prince Rupert and Canada in Remembrance 2014

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 failing 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 Fields.

As Canadians prepare for this Day of Remembrance of those who have died in the wars of our past, as well as to think of those who serve this nation today. Take some time to review some of the items below.

They provide a glimpse to the sacrifice of the past and provide for a permanent reminder of those who have served the call of their nation.
