Our poppy was purchased when they went they went on general sale. In fact 3 were purchased, one for my Mum, my sister and ours. A general reminder of those who have their lives in all conflicts so that we all can live the life we do. It’s also in Memory of our dear departed Dad/husband Fred who served in the Guards Independent Parachute Co back in the 50’s. He was very proud of his service. Unfortunately no longer with is after passing away from Cancer & unbeknown to him he was entitled to the GSM Cyprus clasp which is now framed hanging in our living room. I am sure if he knew he had this it would have been worn with emense pride.
