Front Inscription

In Flanders Fields

In Flander`s fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row or 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 down, saw sunset glow
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
In Flander`s fields,

Take up you 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 Flander`s fields.

We remember those who carried the ANZAC spirit for the last 100 years and those who still do
