  • Photo of Edward Harvey Lunn– My great uncle was an  Englishman but was in Canada when war broke out so enlisted in the Canadian forces.
He died of wounds sustained on the Ypres salient in 1915.
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Among the crosses row on row
That mark our place. And in the sky
The larks still bravely singing fly
Scarce heard among the guns below
