The Love of a Brother;From Plaistow to Passchendaele
 
WWI POEM + REFERENCE POINTS

 

Oh! you who sleep in Flanders Fields
Sleep sweet - to rise anew
We caught the torch you threw
And holding high, we keep the faith
With all who died.

And now the Torch and Poppy Red

We wear in honour of our dead
Fear not that ye have died for naught;
We’ll teach the lesson that ye wrought
In Flanders Fields


From "
We Shall keep The Faith" Moina Michael 1918

So, by reading the story of Fred's life, let us keep faith with Fred and all his fellow sufferers in war.
