    You better have yours!

    Poppy that is

    So surprised that so many people don't wear these little flowers in memory of all the people who gave their lives and fought for their country

    Such a shame really, as if it wasn't for them, we'd all be speaking German now

    Nah, it woulda taken us a lot longer than just 60 years to pick it up!

    But quite right, definitely a worthy cause and gesture.

    I agree, dont see many people wearing them. Im in the Fireservice and i have to go to the church to lay the reef. Last year when we were laying the reef some chavs come past and huled abuse at us all in the church yard.

    Some people have no respect.

    Something I will ALWAYS show my respect to.

    Have never missed a rememberence parade, the advantage now is getting drunk afterwards with all the old guys and listening to their fascinating stories (IMO).

    Really annoys me and more so upsets me how people don't show their respect!

    I have mine. I ALWAYS put money in the pot, even if I've already bought a poppy.

    If I were to lose my job and fallon hard times, the British Legion would be the first ones to help me out. It's not just for past soldiers and those who have given their life, but they help many of todays servicemen and women.

    I have also been asked to lay a wreath at my local cenotaph this year. I shall be there in my number 1 dress.
