Rick Howe wrote an article in the weekly news, Nov 7. You know the paper you get whether you want it or not. Anyway, he made a point of his knowledge of the First and Second WW. He also pointed out how few people know more than the first two lines of In Flanders Fields. Throughout his article he recited most of the poem, my question is why did he omit "scarce heard amid the guns below". It's part of the poem why leave it out? For a Remembrance Day Poem, the least you could do is remember. "Lest we forget".
