We actually have 2 poppies. We were living and working out in Brunei Borneo when I saw the website and the chance to buy a poppy. As we weren’t home to visit the display and given that my husband is a Army Veteran having served with 2RTR for 15 years, it seemed appropriate to buy one.
We weren’t sure if it would survive the journey out to Brunei just over 7,000 miles but it did, and it survived the return crossing when we arrived back in the UK in 2015.
What we didnt know is that my parents had also bought one for my husband not knowing that we had done the same. So we now have 2 which will be handed down to our two boys.
