Both poppies were given to me as 60th birthday gifts by my wife and sister-in-law. I mounted them on a simple, oak plaque and located it on a wall to avoid accidents from my lively grandchildren. During my ownership, they have been moved three times, from our house in Lincolnshire to our first house in Cropton and now, to our recent house in Cropton. They have always been on display in a social space and as such, have often evoked conversations and discussions regarding their significance.
