Poppy Day commemorates Armistice Day,
November 11, 1918; i.e., 11/11/1918.
Start here for a large COMPENDIUM of “Red Poppy” information
— history, significance, traditions & photos.
These were lovingly and painstakingly colorized by a Welsh electrician, Royston Leonard (55) — who lives in Cardiff.
Thank YOU, Roy. Great job. [Yes, he is on Facebook.]
