I had my poppy bought for me by my husband. My son bought a special display box for mother’s day. This poppy represents all the people that fought in world war one, to remember those who gave their lives and those that suffered because of the war. To try and live in harmony so this never happens again. It sits pride of place on my unit. A thing of beauty, but a reminder war is never far away. Hoping that my offspring never have to see another war.
