Remembrance Day

November 11 1918 marks the end of the first World War (WW1)and was specifically dedicated by King George V the following year as a day of remembrance for members of the armed forces who were killed during the War.

The Remembrance Poppy has been used since 1920 to remember those we lost in battle. The choice was inspired by the World War I poem "In Flanders Fields". These poppies bloomed across some of the worst battlefields of Flanders, their brilliant red colour makes appropriate symbol for the blood spilled in the war.

Thank you for your sacrifices.
