WESFA Remembers.... Sunday 12 November

Remembrance Day WESFA.jpg

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.

John McRae May 1915

All Clubs and Referees are reminded that one minute's silence is to be held before all matches this Sunday to mark those who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect us in previous wars and conflicts.
