Remembrance: The First Poppy Day

Remembrance or "Poppy Day" is Great Britain's day of remembrance for its WWI veterans. The practice of wearing poppies takes its origin from the poem, “In Flanders Fields, 1915” written by Lieut. Col. John McCrae. He was a member of the first Canada contingent and died in France in 1918 after four years of service on the western front.
