Ed Simons: Why I wear a poppy

THERE are a few moments in your life where a particular action evokes a feeling of pride.

THERE are a few moments in your life where a particular action evokes a feeling of pride. The wearing of the red poppy is one of those actions.

Being brought up in the early Fifties the memory of war was still fresh, and the nation literally came to a halt on Poppy day. In recent years the symbol of the poppy has been brought back to life in remembering our young soldiers who have so tragically lost their lives in current warfare.

Pinning the poppy to my lapel is a very small token of thanks to those very brave men and women.
