My husband and I decided to buy two poppies as a piece of history for our two daughters. My husband is a serving soldier and is a Royal Military Policeman. I work with military children as a teacher in the garrison schools. Poppies are a symbol of remembrance and significant in our lives. We hope our girls will display the poppies with pride and remember their lives living all over the world when they have their own homes. For my husband and I, the poppies hold the memories of our friends in the community, stories of loss and experiences gained while serving and teaching the community. As a family, we travelled from Germany to London to see the poppies so the girls could see where their poppies would come from. Lest we forget.
