The British Campaign to push the Japanese out of Burma was the longest and bloodiest of World War 2. Thousands of miles away from the battles in Western Europe, it's soldiers were often known as the 'Forgotten Army' but those who fought in it would never forget...
The poppy appeal and the subsequent parades and services let those who are no longer with us know they are in our thoughts and enable us to give some support to those who are still willing to fight for freedom and damocracy.
Wear your poppy with pride
I love and miss you Grandad
