Window Display for October  / November 2018

The  timely focus for the current window display is WW1. The design is deliberately simple & intended to remind us of the devastation and futility of the loss of lives associated with war. The moving poem naively by John McCrae, is included as  a poignant reminder of those who naively sacrificed so much.
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
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.



This special window display is supported by  MKM Extrusions.
