    Remembrance day 2017 - will you bother

    Reports in the media suggest less and less people are wearing a poppy and people, especially the young, are less and less interested in Remembrance Day.

    Me, Iíll be at my local parade, suited and booted, to say thanks and to remember all those who paid the ultimate sacrifice.

    Is anyone else attending a local parade?

    Well, I've had the bloke on the radio today telling me that Poppies are racist.... Was it the Independent also with a similar story. There was also the "white poppy wombat" on TV earlier in the week extolling the virtues of being a pacifist.

    It's a shame that "hashtags" didn't exist in 1940... by gum, they would have stopped Hitler in his tracks eh?

    Poppy in place. Say thanks for those who defended their rights to be prats!

    Corbyn will do what he did last year and pay his respects correctly.

    Re: Remembrance day 2017 - will you bother

    My 14yr old son is in the Sea Cadets and will be one of the standard bearers on Sunday. He also gets involved with selling poppies in the weeks leading up to RD.
    I have always attended the event and it always brings a lump to my throat and a tear to my eye, especially as the number of surviving veterans decreases each year.

    We will remember them...always.

    I've not got a poppy this year, but whenever I've got a load of silver and copper in the pocket. It goes in a poppy sellers pot.

    I've never been one for the parades, but will show my respects on the day!
