Passchendaele Remembered

In Flanders fields the poppies blow

Between the crosses, row on row...

Over 90 years ago New Zealanders took part in the Battle of Passchendaele in Flanders, Belgium. In fact, 12 October 1917 represents the worst military disaster in our nation’s history when more than 2,800 New Zealanders were either killed, wounded, or listed as missing. Some of them are buried in war cemeteries row on row but many have no known grave — they simply lie in Flanders fields where the poppies still blow.

The RSA is committed to ensure that New Zealanders who lie half a world away in the fields of Flanders are never forgotten. By remembering on 12 October - whether in Belgium or at home you are keeping faith with that solemn request in the final lines of that most famous poem:

If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

We will remember them.

Looks like the possums found a new hiding spot. We’ve dispatched our animal control guys to get them.
