David purchased two poppies in memory of his two Great Uncles who served at Ypres and the Somme.

During his trip to France, David took one of his poppies to Thiepval and donated it to commemorate the missing of the Somme. He also discovered many other details of his family who served, including the story of his Great Uncle, Frank Sumpter, who survived the war and was a pallbearer for the unknown warrior on his journey home from France. Next year, he will donate his other poppy to St Georges Memorial Church in Ypres in honour of those who lost their lives there.
