Thank you, Craigie. It was time I got going. Only a week left to ‘Remembrance Day‘ 2019.

Over the last few years I have done a fair amount to educate folks, especially in the U.S., on the ‘Red Poppy‘ significance and our British tradition of ‘Poppy Day‘ — on November 11th each year.

This tutorial, by the ‘mothership’, so to speak, will help.
