Are you wearing your poppy with pride?? This Sunday really is A Day to Remember. Watching the Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance last night made me feel very proud to be British - and very lucky not to have lost a loved one. The Festival includes the traditional two-minute silence as poppy petals fall from the roof of the Royal Albert Hall, each representing a life lost in war. We have a very special nephew who has recently completed his training at Sandhurst, and as a family we are all immensely proud of him. Anyway, I saw this fabulous photo on the Lipsticks and Curls FB page and thought I would share it with you - "Image: 7th November 1953: Twin sisters Pamela and Pauline Chamberlain selling Remembrance Day poppies at Leytonstone, London". I really love these vintage photographs and this seemed so appropriate to share with you today.
