Poppy Day

There are only a handful of people walking this earth who fought during the First World War and every year that passes leaves us with fewer survivors of the Second. In today’s cynical and materialistic culture it perhaps wouldn’t be surprising to see the younger generation ignore Remembrance Day but given the numbers of teenagers and children who wear their poppies with pride we can be safe in the knowledge that, even when all those brave men and women are gone, we will remember them.
