Swindon 105.5 war special

Swindon 105.5 war special.

As apart of my work at Swindon 105.5 i have been given the challenge to create a number of pieces on World war one and remembrance day. On this part of my blog i will put up snippets of my radio products.
The poem Flanders Fields By Canadian artillery commander Major John MCcrae is the poem of the first world war. The piece describes the Red poppy’s over the graves of the soldiers . This is the inspiration for the Red poppy on Remembrance day.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow                poppy
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.
