I didn’t get a chance to see the poppies at the Tower but wanted to be part of the story. So when I found out you could buy one, I jumped at the chance.
Several years ago I was able to visit some of the battlefields and cemeteries of WW1 and found the experience a truly humbling one. The Last Post at the Menin Gate is an extremely emotional experience.
My poppy is now in a vase in a window in my front porch for all the world to see and never forget.
