    3. In Flanders Fields In Flanders fields the poppies grow 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. -- Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae, 1915 In remembrance of Frank BUSKEY (formerly WALKER), 10th Battalion, Loyal North Lancashire Regiment. Born Bolton 1891, died 24th September 1917 of war wounds. Buried at Godewaersvelde British Cemetery. and another . . .

Also in remembrance of Bob DUBUC, Harry ELWELL, Bernard KLEIN, Frederick KLEIN, Richard KLEIN, and especially in remembrance of my father Edwin Russell KLEIN, who all served in and survived WWII but who are no longer with us and are dearly missed.
