I bought two poppies in memory of my great uncles Lt. Stanley Macbeth and 2nd Lt. Harold Macbeth. They both died on September 15th 1916 and are buried one grave apart from each other in Caterpillar Valley Cemetery, Longueval, Somme.
I visited their graves with my husband, sister,her partner plus our labrador on September 16th last year and laid a wreath. We were originally not allowed in at 11am as planned because Prince Charles was visiting the Anzac memorial there, but, after some negotiation, a calming down of tempers and a good lunch we managed to visit later on that day!
Our poppies are in a vase in our red dining room.
