Poppies Bloom In Flanders Fields

DIKSMUIDE, BELGIUM - JULY 14: Wild poppies grow in the 'Trench of Death', a preserved Belgian World War One trench system on July 14, 2017 in Diksmuide, Belgium. July 31, 2017 marks the centenary of one of the bloodiest battles of World War One, The Battle of Passchendaele, also known as The Third Battle of Ypres in which almost 325,000 Allied troops and 260,000 Germans were killed. The poppy has become an internationally recognised symbol of remembrance after it grew in the war-ravaged and muddied landscape of Belgian Flanders. The sight of the poppy growing by the graves of soldiers inspired Canadian soldier John McCrae to write one of the most famous World War One poems, 'In Flanders Fields'.
