Greg then mounted his trusty steed and headed out to Essex Farm, 2.5km from our B&B. (Wendy had a lay afternoon out of the rain). This is where the famous LTCOL McCrae wrote that moving poem "In Flanders Fields". We loved this poem, it captures the whole essence of war. Once learnt never forgotten.
