Our poppy was a gift. I was thrilled to receive it as my father was in the RAF Regiment when I was young. Remembrance is of great significance to me. I really felt that this installation highlighted the scale of lives lost in a beautiful, poingent way.
Our poppy is displayed in a clear vase on the mantelpiece. We wanted to display it simply so that it would not be overshadowed and in a place where we could view it everyday.
