My husband and son both serve in the armed forces. I bought 3 poppies one for us one for my son and one for his girlfriend at the time (she is now his wife). We bought a special case for it and its pride of place on the wall in my dinning room.

Myself and my husband have laid wreaths at war graves in The Netherlands when we were posted there and seeing the war graves and the ages of the people that scarficed everything to give us our freedom that we have today it was very moving and a real privilege be able to do this and we will never forget those who have given the ultimate sacrifice.

We also went to London to see the display and it brought tears to my eyes to think what each poppy meant.
