I missed out on the original round of poppies being sold. However my Dad was able to purchase one for me as a surprise gift. It is in a special display box together with the certificate and Tower of London photo to keep it as perfect as possible. Although I’m not aware of losing any family during the 14-18 war, I’ve visited the Anzac graves at Gallipoli which was an incredibly moving and humbling experience. The Tower of London display of poppies was breathtaking and it is right to commemorate these brave people.
