100 Years On …

WW1 – Men and women in uniform – The 1971 British Legion Anniversary stamp that I have had in my collection since childhood

Poppy Day is here again. Whichever colour poppy you choose to wear,

the traditional red poppy

the white peace poppy for remembering all nations dead and conscientious objectors

or the purple poppy to remember the horses and animals involved in war

wear it with thoughtfulness today.

I wear the red poppy to symbolises all three of these aspects of conflict since 1914.

Remembering all the men and women of all nations  and animals affected by war on the 100th anniversary of the Armistice.
