My poppie stands in a vase in the fireplace for all to see. I am an ex member of the WRAF, my husband is an ex member of the RFA and we are now both retired. Both my husbands father and my father served in the army during the second world war. My Grandfather was in World War One. He was gassed during a battle. Unfortunately I dont know which one but I do have a photograph of him in his uniform just before he went to France. Although he survived the war it wasnt to be for long. I bought my poppy to remember not just him but also all the others who did not make it through not just the Great War but WW2 and all the other wars or troubles since.I also bought it in the hope that our children would see it and never forget. Thank you
