Visit In Flanders Fields on Remembrance Day

 In Flanders Fields

If you haven't been to Canada's second largest military museum, (or haven't been there since they expanded few years back), the RCA Museum in Shilo, Manitoba is offering free admission on Remembrance Day.  
 
Two poignant things to see that day would be:  
 
The original printing plate for the poem In Flanders Fields (from Punch Magazine, Dec 8, 1915).
 
The Victoria Crosses of two of Canadian soldiers, one a Manitoban.
