Purple Poppies For Remembrance Of Animals

A very valid comment has been made regarding Animals At War and how they are remembered.

The purple poppy has been used to remember the sacrifice and roles of animals in war. However, the organisation that introduced this have now withdrawn it.

To see their reasons why please go to the "Animals At War"  30th January post

It is a shame that the purple poppy no longer has it's place alongside the red poppy that we associate with remembering the brave men and women who themselves, willingly or not, gave the ultimate sacrifice and became "victims" of war.
