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 .
Chris Grayling The Secretary of State for Transport told Rosie Cooper MP “Of course, the people of West Lancashire will be getting the benefit of the investment programme in the line from Manchester to Blackpool. It is a huge investment in improving the services on that route. That, right now, is our priority. After that, I hope we will move forward with other projects that can make a difference to passengers in Lancashire and elsewhere in the north-west”.
Well, that is one hell of a difference as we move to the Manchester/Blackpool route!
