POPPY DAY [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Independent — 25 October 1947

POPPY DAY In ancient Cathay, long before Marco Polo first saw its wonders, there grew a flower fronm which was distilled a potent drug. It was white ih colour, and it was known as the "Flower of Forgetfulness." Slow centuries passed and Europe emerged from her savagery, and fair cities spread across her landscape. And then from the East came Gen- ghis Khan. 'His ravaging hordes, as they swept westwards brought death and terroi' in their train. And. some thing besides death they brought- a strange and awesome symbol. In the wake of the great Khan's blood thirsty warriors, wherever the blood of man was spilled, tlbe seeds of the "Flower of Forgetfulness" budded full flower. But a strange transformation had taken place. The white "Flower of Forgetfulness," the Poppy, had turn ed a blood red; and in the centre of each bloom was a cross. Through the centruies an even stranger. event occurred. Emperors and Kings marched their armies across suffering Europe in bloody conflict, and everywhe...
