In remembrance of the millions who sacrificed their todays for our tomorrows throughout the First World War – Flanders Fields is possibly the most appalling place to be during The Great War. Despite the devastation all around him, a young Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae wrote his now-famous poem 'In Flanders Fields', having been moved by the profusion of wild red poppies emerging amongst the graves of the fallen. He would not live to see his red poppy become our national symbol of remembrance.
In Flanders Fields, the poppies grow, between the crosses row on row...
To mark 100 years since the end of The Great War, a new limited edition coin has been issued. McCrae's poem inspires the poignant '2018 Ode Of Remembrance' Coin; the striking design depicts a fallen soldier in the arms of a winged Victory, in Flanders' Fields. The winged Victory figure featured on the Victory medal, which was awarded to over 6 million people who served during the conflict from 1914 – 1918. Now, 100 years after the end of the First World War, this new coin shows a solemn representation of Victory as she reflects on the inscription from Binyon's 'Ode of Remembrance – they shall grow not old'.
A poignant tribute to the heroism of those who served 100 years ago
