This year marks the 100th year since the anniversary of world war 1, the war to end all wars when a hastily crafted armistice was signed in France on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. Millions of British, Australian and American over the years have worn a red poppy in the memory of the men and women who gave their lives for their country. Most of those who wear them will be honouring, fathers, grandfathers, uncles who perished during world war 1.
“In Flanders fields the poppies blow,
Between the crosses, row on row…”
So went the famous lines by John McCrae, who captured the symbolism of solace that red poppies offered the soldiers in the trenches. This colour swatch I call poppies.
