My daughter was 2 and a half when they were displayed at the Tower of London and weirdly she still remembers going to see the ‘red coming out of the window’. I wanted her to have one as a reminder and to help tell the history of the war. It’s not something that should be forgotten and as years go by its harder for young people to fully appreciate what happened and the impact it had on so many. Having something tangible for her to look at (with the story it has) will hopefully inspire her to read, learn and commemorate an important part of history.
