I bought my poppy not just to remember and honour the soldiers who died for us, but also to remember the suffering and loss my Dutch family and many of my countrymen experienced during the wars in the Netherlands. It lived for a while amongst some plants, but I made a mount for it and it is now hanging on the wall.
I was really pleased to see the poppy display in Southend in June. Very peaceful and hardly any people.
