This poppy was bought for me by my cousin, who’s father was my dads brother. It is to honour my father who died in France at Caan in 1944 and is buried just outside of Caan in a war grave, which I have visited with my cousin and our other cousins. It sits in a vase that my cousin had that was our Nan’s (my dad’s mum) and that my cousin gave to me and so the poppy and vase are very special to me.
