I will be thinking about Sir Edward Morrison this Remembrance Day

Sir Edward WB Morrison was born in London in 1867 and served his country during a career as a journalist, writer and military member.

He was knighted for his services on the battlefield.

Definitely an unsung hero because few people know of this man.

My story below is about his connection to In Flanders Fields. If not for his loyalty, this poem published 100 years ago this year, might not have been written.

Thanks to a blog reader who first brought his story to my attention.
