    Default Poppy 2009

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    With the high profile of on going Operation Herrick ( Afghanistan) i feel it important to launch this years Poppy appeal in earnest.
    I make NO appoligies for this , and i appeal to all Vectra-C members to support The poppy Appeal and Help For Heroes


    Poppy
    In Flanders' Fields
    John McCrae, 1915

    In Flanders' Fields the Poppies blow
    Between the crosses, row on row,
    That mark our place: and in the sky
    The larks, still bravely singing, fly
    Scarce heard amid the guns below.

    We are the dead. Short days ago
    We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
    Loved and were loved, and now we lie
    In Flanders' Fields.

    Take up our quarrel with the foe;
    To you from failing hands we throw
    The torch; be yours to hold it high,
    If ye break faith with us who die
    We shall not sleep, though Poppies grow
    In Flanders' Fields.
    Please think of all of our Brothers and Sisters of all faiths and creeds who have given their LIFE in support of this Nation.. and Comonwealth.

    Thanks
    STEVEH

    Is that your bar, as in you own it or is it a NAFFI one? If its yours where are you, the youngest is in Gutersloh and we nip over to see him 2/3 times a year, always looking for somewhere new to visit.
    Last time i was in Hohne was to go to Belsen.
    Assuming im talking about the same place of course!!!

    Anyway, bump to the top, a subject close to my heart.

    Having been to the lincs aviation Museum, as the poppy appeal was launched including a service too, it was a pretty moving experience. I have the poppy on my car, since(pics in here) also the wrist band & one for my lapel




    I would also hope the 2 minutes silence will also be observed on this site tomorrow too.
