The emergency services have excelled themselves with their tribute to the men and women who never made it home, by adorning their vehicles (and vessels) with the famous red poppy.
This is the first time that we have NOT had any stories sent into us by our followers about them not being allowed to display poppies on their vehicles / uniforms.
And for that, we should all be proud.
It just goes to show what a close relationship the emergency services have with our armed forces and as someone who has served in both, then it makes me feel immensely proud.
We have been sent loads of images this past week of emergency vehicles which are proudly displaying the poppy.
Too many to share on our Facebook page.
But, speaking as someone who has served in the military, then I would like to thank every single member of the emergency services who has taken the time and who has made the effort to affix a red poppy to their vehicle (or vessel).
And I would also like to thank Management for not stopping their staff who have wanted to pay tribute to the hundreds of thousands of men and women who never made it home to their friends and families from displaying the poppy, simply in order to appease the disciples of political correctness.
I am sure that many veterans will agree, that each time they see an emergency vehicle with a poppy on it, then it stirs up a feeling of gratitude based on the show of support that has been made by the emergency services for our glorious war dead.
We should never forget the sacrifices made by our brave armed forces and for many of us who have served in the military, we remember our fallen brothers and sisters on a daily basis.
We will remember them…..
