left side to remember

Remembrance Day is in a couple of days. I have to keep asking “which side are you to wear the Poppy”.?

Some people say a poppy should be worn on the left lapel, to keep it close to your heart – it is also the side that medals are worn by the Armed forces. Others argue that the symbol should be displayed on the left by men and the right by women, the traditional positions of a badge or brooch.

In our family we have a war hero who has since passed on, my father-in-law. His name is:

Wilford Hiram Kirk – received the equivalent to the Victoria Cross in the Holland Liberation.

You can google him and you will have to translate as it is in Dutch.

Do you have anyone you can honour this week? We cannot forget about these heroes. There are only a select few left.
