We Shall Not Sleep

It was written during the second battle of Ypres and published in Punch magazine on December 8, 1915. This poem by Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae gives eloquent voice to those who have died in the war, and is published here by McClintock’s store in Streetsville to urge the purchase of Victory Bonds.
