Remembrance Tribute

Hi everyone,
I've just been shopping near to a small village called Sileby (near Leicester).
I noticed some single dinner plate sized poppies dotted about the village and asked an old lady (who was writing a name on one) why they seemed to be so randomly scattered.
She said ...
... the 86 large poppies were tied to lampposts close to the houses that belonged to a fallen soldier in the Great War. Sileby must have been a very small village 100 years ago. To see so many poppies in Swan Street alone really said so much about the sacrifices of the nation. Those young excited volunteers joining their mates in the friendly battalions never returned to their homes. Other villages nearby are doing the same thing.
God bless them all. We owe them such gratitude for our freedom and way of life.
