I received the poppy as a gift from my wife as I served 24 years in the British Army and my father served 22 years. My brother also served in the Army. Every time I look at the poppy it reminds me of my father who sadly passed away. Our thoughts also go out to the men and women who served and still serve in the Armed Forces. I am really proud and honoured to have one of these commemorative poppies. Lest we forget.
