I have two poppies = to remember and honour both my – and my wifes – grandfathers who both served in WW1.
My grandfather served in the DLI and was gassed at the Battle of the Somme.
My wifes grandfather served in the Machine Gun Corps in France and suffered serious facial injuries caused by shrapnel which left him blind in one eye.
Both were decent, ordinary family men.
Both have passed away.
Both will be proudly remembered for the service they gave and the sacrifice they made,
