Poppy Day Appeal and Remembrance

Robert (Bob) Colman, President of the Bedford and District Branch of the Royal British Legion and his wife Ruth attended the service at Taymer for Poppy Day remembrance and gave a talk about the support and help this organisation gives. Ron, was very proud to wear his red beret. He thanked everyone for supporting Poppy Day Appeal and said that our poppy supports The Armed Forces Community past and present. One of our residents Marg presented Ruth with a beautiful bouquet of red carnations and roses and white gypsophila.

SCRIPTURE: JOHN CHAPTER15: V 10-12
John McRae Poem

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.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

HYMN: ABIDE WITH ME
