Poppy

Out flogging the poppy on Saturday.

I stood, freezing, next to John.
 We weren't alone.
 This is Prestwick's War Memorial in front of the bank at the market cross. Prestwick is small, in 1914 it was a lot smaller.
This is the font panel. There are three more each with 60-70 names on each one. The bodies are hundreds of miles away from our town, some known and some 'known unto God'.
