Subject: RE: WWII Memorial, finally!
Remembrance day was a moveable feast, I have a book 'In Flanders Fields - the story of the poem by John McCrae', by Linda Granfield, which features a poster from the 1920's giving poppy day (Armistice day) as November 15th

The book is a poignant story of how the poem was written, the author's life and death, and the beginnings of the Poppy Appeal, and well worth a read. It was published first in Canada, but is available widely.
