I got our Poppy as a suprise for my wife after we had visited the display whilst in London for the London Triathlon in 2014.
Coming from a military family I thought it would be nice to own a piece of history that was also going to help those who were prepared to defend our country.
Our military family history has both my parents in the RAF.
Grandparents: WRAF, Royal Navy, Duke of Wellington Rgt, Royal Artillery and Luftwaffe. Also the Land Army.
Aunts and Uncles RAF, Kings Troop RHA plus other Army Rgts.
My Brother is currently a serving soldier.
This is our constant tribute and reminder of what extraordinary acts ordinary people do for Great Britain.
We believe that we are lucky to own one and hope that we enjoy it for a long time to come.
