I bought the poppy to honour my grandfather, who served in the Royal Navy in the Great War, and was recalled for service in WW11. He survived, and continued to serve his country as a Coastal Preventative Officer. He served 60 years in uniform, and received the BEM. He was the finest man I have ever known, and I treasure the poppy as a symbol of his service to his country, and am forever grateful that he came home when so many didn’t. The poppy will be passed to my grandchildren when I am gone,
