Bought this poppy in remembrance of my Great Uncle Jonathan Pearson, KOYLI, died 30/09/16 after being shot on front line THEIPVAL. Also his brother, Joseph Pearson, Royal Scots Greys, died 26/05/15 on the Ramparts, YPRES. My Great Aunt Hannah Pearson was a nurse and she died in 1918 of the Spanish Flu. Their younger brother William Pearson served in the RAMC and returned from the war but died in 1926 from lung disease caused by effects of gas attack in Ypres 1915. My poor poor Great Great Grandmother and Great Grandmother must have suffered terribly, like so many others who lost loved ones.
