I bought the poppy to give as a gift for my mother who was brought up by her grandparents and also collects all things poppy and we as a family support the British Legion whenever we can. My great grandfather served in WW1 as a Blacksmith but never spoke about what he experience. We still have his service record and he spent the whole of the war in France. We bought the poppy so we, as a family never forget the sacrifices made by our military past and present, so it can be passed down the generations to commemorate their bravery. Lest We Forget.
