I bought a poppy in remembrance of those across time who have bravely lost their lives for our country. I was always brought up to respect the armed forces; my grandad served in the army. I have a lot of friends linked to the Royal Marines and spent many years raising money for Royal Marine charities. I am a long time member of the Royal British Legion and attend the Festival of Remembrance when I am fortunate enough to get tickets and we visit Westminster to show our respect annually. It is important we remember and we pass their legacy on to future generations.
