Poppy was bought to commemorate my great grandfather Michael OLPHERT who fought and survived at Ypres (mustard gas lost him half his lungs) with the RIC regiment from Derry. He survived but lost his pals – names not known by my family. The ceramic poppy is still in its box, but I’m on the lookout to find a refined beautiful holder for it. The search continues.
