Remembrance Kit

I made this little kit in remembrance of all the British Service men & Women, Killed or Injured in action whislt serving thier Queen & Country. I was going to make it available by Donation to The Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal only. But I knew that those people in the community that have no hearts, souls or morales, would share it anyway as they always do. So i have decided to offer it for download, knowing that those good people amongst us will have it in their hearts to click the link & donate a £ or two to the Legion anyway. To those of you that do make a donation for it, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Hugs Lisa

Dear Lisa,

Thank you very much for the beautiful Remembrance kit. I am a proud Canadian whose paternal grandfather served in WWII. I wear my poppy faithfully each year in memory of our legions who fought for the freedom of all of us in the British colonies and beyond.

Surprisingly there are tears welling up in my eyes right now!

Thank you so so much!

It makes me so emotional when i read these things, i've got eyes full of tears at the moment.
My Great Uncle was missing presumed dead, after his ship was bombed during World War 2. He never did get to see the tiny new born baby waiting for her Daddy to come home.

I consider myself to be young at 25years old, but when i think that there are many young men & women, much younger than me fighting for their countrys, it makes you think doesn't it. The story of a young Soldier that had his limbs blown off in Afaganistan & was flown home on the plane with Prince Harry, sat staring at him in disbelief, stays perminately in my mind. This young man who fought for what his country believes is right, has recieved a compensation payout less than what some people have recieved for a strain injury in the office. The British Government should be ashamed of themselves.

Thank you so much for making this wonderful and beautiful kit. It is a wonderful tribute and I can't wait to make a Rememberance Day tag with it. I give to the Poppy fund in both Canada and the U.S. and proudly wear one every year. I have the same one my father gave me many years ago, but every year I buy some for my whole family.
Thank you again for your wonderful tribute to a very worthy organization.
