Poppy Day

This is a picture of my dad, he did'nt die in the war but my Uncle Harry did (my dads brother) so to day I remember my uncle Harry who died in the first world war, and I have huge respect for my Dad and my brothers who were involved in the 2nd world war.

Whilst living in Cosham, Portsmouth, my Mom and my older brothers and sisters lived through horrific bombing which affected them all all of their lives. God Bless all the service men and women who fight and die to give us all a safer future.
