    Don't Forget To Buy A Poppy For Rememberance Day

    So get your poppies bought.

    Were it not for those that the British legion supports YOUR life would be very different. Regardless of whether you agree with the politics behind the decisions that lead to war, the soldiers deserver ALL of our support.

    The government provides precious little for those soldiers (and families of soldiers) seriously injured or killed, but by buying a poppy you can help by not only giving money but showing support. Help for Heroes also provide support to the aforementioned and are a very worthwhile charity too.

    A POPPY ON YOUR FACEBOOK PROFILE DOES NOT COUNT - GO AND BUY A POPPY.

    Thanks, Steve.

    A healthy bit of silence-facism to remind everyone of their hard-won freedoms! That's what I like to see!

    Oh, wait...

    Also please don't donate 2p etc and be a cheapskate just to show you have a poppy. The donations are needed recoup costs too as well as to support the charity.

    They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old.

    Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

    At the going down of the sun and in the morning.

    We will remember them.

    Hehe, well no-one spoke this year, but one guy sat tearing up bits of paper. He just got the Akela eyes, I think he understood.
