President, Rotary Club of Henley Bridge: Why I wear a poppy

MY stepfather was serving in the RAF and was rescued from near Dunkirk at the beginning of the Second World War. He served in India, then back in Europe.

My father-in-law also served in the RAF in India. Both were away from their families and, luckily, survived the war.

I did two years’ National Service in the RAF. We were lucky not to be injured or killed in the service of our country.

The poppy is a small tribute for the big sacrifice of others and raises much-needed funds.Rotarians, professional, business and community people who volunteer their time and talents, aspire to promote peace and fellowship in their own communities and throughout the world and encourage the wearing of the poppy in the UK.
