My grandfather Major Wilfrid Carless of the Herefordshire Regiment was missing presumed dead on August 12th 1915 at Gallipoli.
We went to see the amazing poppies at the Tower of London and Wilfrid’s name was read out on the Roll of Honour on 4/11/2014.
We decided to buy a poppy and Tim Hawkins, a furniture maker from Hereford, designed and made a beautiful cabinet for the poppy. The back slides up and we keep photographs and other memories in there.
The small poppies along the front of the inside of the cabinet were made by Charlotte aged 9 who is a great, great granddaughter of Wilfrid.
WE WILL REMEMBER HIM
