OK, it's not often I appeal on behalf of the British way of life but I am today. If anyone would like to sell poppies on behalf of the British Legion in France please contact me for details of how to obtain the poppies in France. I attend the French ceremony every year with my kids who although fairly French wear their poppy with pride, it creates a talking point with the locals.
I work as a tour guide and just this week I had a Jewish Polish/American client who was in born in a displaced persons camp in Germany just after the war. It came up in conversation and he said that his parents never discussed the Holocaust but we both agreed that although that generation never mentioned it, it was vitally important that today's generation do discuss it. To forget is to pretend it never happened, to remember will help it to not happen again. Please show your support for the British Legion and all the wars that our soldiers fight for us.
