Poppy's

Post by Deep Diver » Wed Nov 07, 2018 7:26 pm

This year is the centenary of the end of WW1 and this week I have been taken pictures of one local display to remember the fallen of all conflicts.
This is St John's church in Felixstowe with it's hand made display. All the poppy's are knitted or crocheted by local people.

Simple and Stunning, a great tribute to our brave Brothers and Sisters who paid the ultimate price for ourselves.
Freedom has a price, the cost is buried in the ground :nono:

A very moving tribute. They won't be forgotten.

I may not agree with you but i will defend your right to do so with my last breath. :respek:

Well said!

I really must get my act together and pop by, even if it is by bike/car.
