I took the above photo of the remembrance garden here in Ivybridge. The poppy is used as a symbol of remembrance, as they were said to be the first flower to grow from the freshly dug graves of dead soldiers on Flanders Fields.
"They shall not grow 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."
(Poem by Laurence Binyon).

Here is a photo of my little grandson taken a couple of years ago on a Remembrance Day Parade, which will take place again on Sunday in every town and village throughout the United Kingdom
