Poppy Day (Explored......Front Page!)

Explore Front Page!! :-)

I post this to mark Remembrance Sunday, also known as Poppy Day, this sunday....

 

In the United Kingdom, Remembrance Sunday is the second Sunday of November, the Sunday nearest to 11 November (Remembrance Day), which is the anniversary of the end of the hostilities of the First World War at 11 a.m. in 1918.

 

My great grandad fought in the trenches in the first world war, my grandad was a Para that fought in the second world war and took part in the battle of Arnham, and my dad was in the SAS.....all of them very brave men, all of them have since passed away.....i miss them all.....

Whether you agree with war or not, what can't be disputed is the great bravery and self- sacrifice of people that fought for our liberty and freedom, many of whom weren't as lucky as my relatives, and died doing their duty for their country....

 

Remember them please....

 

Take care my friends,

 

Carl xx
