We bought the poppy, to honour our ancestors, who were lost in WW1. There are so many of them, but for me, it was my Great Great Uncle, Ephraim Warner (Essex Regiment) who started me off on the genealogy trail. I’ve never seen a picture of him, but have learned so much about him and his short life through research over many years. The same with all the others – their lives and sacrifice should never be forgotten.
