Flanders Field

Plaque : 

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.
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.
