I purchased my poppy in memory of my great great uncle William, a private in the Coldstream guards, who died 28th September 1915 at the age of 20. Born in 1895 in the sleepy village of Ston Easton in Somerset. Only two miles down the road in Chilcompton, is this poppy, the poppy that will eternally be dedicated to him and to his sacrifice to his king and country. They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going of the sun and in the morning. We will remember them.
