its a mark of respect for all those who gave their lives so we have the 'freedom' we do now.

I always end up buying several poppies - but loose them :eek: so hardly end up wearing them :eek:

I buy them because I want to support our brave men, women and their families - I may not always agree with the conflicts but I will always support those who are so brave.

I always buy me, my mum and my grandad a poppy :)
I've always worn a poppy since I can remember, as a mark of respect for all those who have lost their lives, trying to keep our freedom.

Yes I will be, same every year. We always attend the Rememberence day parade in our village too.
What do you all do with your poppies after Rememberance Day?
I never like to throw them away so they go in a pot, a friend took loads when he went to the River Kwai and released them, complete with tears in his eyes.

Yes....for the very reasons that everyone has already said. I feel its the very least I can do.

Are the purple poppies in remembrance of the service animals?

Alway buy, never wear. My life doesn't really suit wearing a Poppy and I'd feel devastated if my poppy ended up being trampled in the mud.
Mine sits in the heater vent on the dashboard in my car or in a little vase my mother gave me on my sideboard :)
