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.

Last year’s Remembrance Sunday post 2017 –
Armistice and Remembrance Weekend – a suitable time to reflect, in this case on the WW1 Centenary, Poppy or Armistice Day 99 years on and a 104 year old book by H.G. Wells.
Written by H G Wells in 1913, being the final page of Little Wars.
Something to think about as we mark another 11th November 99 years on and another Remembrance Sunday.
