Remembrance Day

Clifford Berryman, 6 June 1945

Rudyard Kipling adapted by Clifford Berryman, 6 June 1945

UPDATE: See also “This year, I will wear a poppy for the last time” by Harry Leslie Smith (via EZH), particularly:

Come 2014 when the government marks the beginning of the first world war with quotes from Rupert Brooke, Rudyard Kipling and other great jingoists from our past empire, I will declare myself a conscientious objector.

And, from Dorothy Parker:

Unhappily, the poppies, those flowers for forgetfulness, turned out to be predominant in the pattern.
