I bought my poppy for my son, the keeper of our family tree, in honour Private Matthew Gardener, 8th B, King’s Own (Royal Lancaster Regiment) who died on 9th April 1917 aged 34. Son of James & Jane Gardner of Overton , Lancaster. Buried by the ARRAS MEMORIAL in the Fauborg-d’Amiens Cemetery, France. Also in honour of all our family members who served in the services and Merchant Navy. The poppies are breathtaking and ours is “planted” in my son’s garden. I saw the presentation at Tower of London which was just wonderful and made me proud, grateful and sad
