Charlie talks about the symbolism of the poppy and bought one as a tribute to his Great Grandad and others who fought during the war.
“I was born on the 11th November 1977. The poppy is a truly beautiful flower, but represents so much more; courage, pain, sadness, poignancy, bravery, conflict and freedom. I was fortunate enough to be able to buy my own poppy because of what my great grandad and others did a long time ago. Thank you.”
