I bought the Poppy to honour my great uncle Grayston Elvey who died in WW1 on 3rd November 1916 at the age of 19. I found out a lot about my Great Uncle from researching the family tree and he was someone my Grand Mother did not talk about. He is buried in the Carnoy cemetery which I hope to visit one day. The poppy will be passed on to my relatives along with his medals and the photos my mother has given me.
