Wear your poppy with pride, be humble and give thanks. There is no excuse for not every single person to remember them and buy a poppy. We owe them everything.

And in Wycombe town centre, at the 2 minutes silence, could shoppers please refrain from barging through the people who are paying their respects. I am sure you can stop for 2 mins before making your purchases in Primark.

I do wear my poppy with pride.
In fact I keep wearing my poppy with pride because I keep losing them!
Does anyone else have this problem?

Is there a way of making sure the money from the Poppy sale goes to the old boys from WWII, rather than these pointless current ones?
