Clive Dytor, headmaster of the Oratory School in Woodcote, is a veteran of the Falklands War. He was a captain in the Royal Marines and was awarded the MC for military action in the Battle of Two Sisters which led to victory.

“I WEAR a poppy because it is a symbol to the world that men and women have made the ultimate sacrifice for others. In particular, I remember the comrades with whom I lived and fought and the fact that they were someone’s son, brother, father, lover or just friend.

War is a wicked thing but the only good outcome is the bravery and self-sacrifice shown by so many on all sides. I salute them by buying and wearing a poppy.”
