Field Of Poppies

Field Of Poppies

On 11 November 2018, you are invited to join the memorial ceremony to mark the Centenary of the signing of the Armistice that ended the hostilities of WWI, at Air Force Memorial Estate (AFME) in Bull Creek.

As a special mark of respect for those who fell in the service of their Country; a “Field of Poppies” will be planted on the Memorial Lawn of the estate, numbering between 9,000 to 10,000 poppies.

These beautiful hand knitted and crocheted poppies have been made through the dedication and support of the committed ladies at AFME; Meadow Springs Estate and the wider community who have spent many months in preparation.

During the ceremony, and in recognition of the sacrifice made by those who served their Country; wreaths will be laid to Commemorate the Fallen, including a wreath of knitted purple poppies, to recognise the sacrifice made by the animals during the conflict.

At the conclusion of the ceremony, there will be an opportunity for some people to plant their own Poppy of Remembrance.

There will also be free entry to the Aviation Heritage Museum to enjoy the amazing WWI aircraft and artefact displays, with the unveiling of a plaque recognising the significance of the Armistice and sandwiches and coffee available in the Club.
