This Poppy was purchased in memory of Pvte William Richards of the Kings Shropshire Light Infantry. On May 10 1917, at the registry office in Pontypridd, he married Miriam Palfrey just over 4months later, September 26 1917, he disappeared into the ground in Polygon Wood and has no known grave.
Why did i do this? his story started with a medal that was found on an allotment site in Birmingham and on September 30 2017 we will be holding a service in his honour and dedicating a memorial garden to him.
