The Poppies Journey

In November 2018 the Footscray-Yarraville City Band toured France, Belgium and the UK to commemorate the Centenary of Armistice of WW1. Joining them on this pilgrimage was the band's WW1 bass drum filled with poppies made by local school children. In 1915 this bass drum had set off to war with the original Anzac's, some whom inscribed their names inside the drum. Over 100 years later it returned to the battlefields of the Western Front, this time accompanied by the poppies of the heirs to the Anzac legend. This video, published in November 2019 by Jacqui Schulz, tells the story of the poppies journey.
