Remembering Wilfred Owen

Owen lived in Birkenhead for many of his formative years. His experiences there shaped his later life and poetry. This year, we hope to commemorate and celebrate his life, as well as all of the fallen from Birkenhead, 100 years on.

No soldier’s paid to kick against His powers.
We laughed, — knowing that better men would come,
And greater wars: when each proud fighter brags
He wars on Death, for lives; not men, for flags
— Wilfred Owen
