After watching a feature on The One Show on BBC One TV, I bought this poppy as a reminder of just one of the fallen heroes who served their country. In the Summer it lives here on the Isle of Wight in the sunshine in our garden for all family & friends to see. Then during the cold & dark months it shelters inside the utility room, still able to be viewed but protected from the elements. I often wonder where ‘my’ fallen solider may have originated from.
Seeing the visual effects of the full display of all the poppies at the Tower of London was so moving. I felt compelled to purchase one.
