2011 - Day 317

Just ready for going to Chapel this morning -

2011 - 317

The top poppy is the typical Royal British Legion one, the lower poppy was given to me by Tim after his summer holiday as he bought it on the Somme - they went there for the 95th anniversay of July 1st 1916 ... our Grandfather went over the top on that day.

Granddad was a member of The Northamptonshire Regiment ... and he bought the silver broach for his mother when he went to the front in 1914.  A close friend of mine, who died 15 years ago bought the other one for his wife when he went to the front in 1939.
