IN REMEMBRANCE
Two almost-vignettes-if-they-were-shorter in honour of the men that served and died in the Great War and the Second World War
About this creation
Here are two extended vignettes, one of Flanders Fields, and the other of the Tomb of the Unknown Wsaarrior.



For all amnd any who don't know, Flanders Fields is one of the graveyards in Somme, France. This grave in particularly abundant in poppies, and they are what the poem by John McCrae is about.

In Flanders fields the poppies grow
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 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 to die,
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.



The Tomb of the Unknown Warrior, which almost every country has, commemorates all the nameless men who died in battle. I could not make the epitaph, so if you should want to

Beneath this stone lies the body
of a British warrior
Unknown by name or rank
brought from France to lie among
the most illustrious of the land
and buried here on Armistice Day
11 Nov: 1920, in the presence of
His Majesty King George V
His Ministers of State
the Chiefs of his Forces
and a vast concourse of the nation.

Thus are commemorated the many
multitudes who during the Great
War of 1914-1918 gave the most that
Man can give Life itself
for God
for King and country
for loved ones, home and empire
for the sacred cause of Justice and
the Freedom of the world.

They buried him among the kings because he
had done good toward God and toward
his house.

Great! It is nice that you honor those who died for their country fighting for a greater cause, but we must honor veterans, too!

I am so glad you care about the soldiers who fought and died during ww1 and ww2. pretty much no-one cares at my school. You really are doing a good job with your MOC. keep up the good work! P.S. If you tell people abput ww2 they think of people running around getting medals and killing the evil germans. Thats not what it was like. Just see 'Saving Privet Ryne'. It says it all. From Jeremy

Very nice! Very simple, and the whole effect is very somber. I think it would be perfect if the poppies were actual Lego flowers, but I still gave you 5 because LDD doesn't have them, and the red 1X1's might be better, anyways. P.S. I'd still call it a vignette, it doesn't matter if its not square, as long as it's a snippet of life...

With all respect, honor, and strength going to those who have fallen protecting what they thought was right. I salute this MOC.

On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, armistance was declared, thus, the end of the first world war. Good MOC.
