Today the "Poppy Appeal" was launched in the south-west.
This is an annual appeal first made by Earl Haig in 1919 and was used to raise money for service families after The Great War.
This tradition has continued - hence the red poppy of Flanders fields that is their symbol. The money raised each year goes to help ex-servicemen and their families with a variety of concerns.
It helps us to remember those who have lost their lives fighting for their Country - and those who continue to suffer.
May you "Wear Your Poppy With Pride!"
