I have two poppies, one bought for me by my sister. They are with an olive tree in my garden. Both are in memory of my dad (born 1897, died 1983), who was wounded near Hebuterne, northern France, during the Batttle of the Somme , in October 1916. In 2015 my wife and I travelled to France and visited the spot (the second photograph).
