This year, as we continue to mark the centenary of the First World War and the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War, The Royal British Legion is asking everyone to support the Poppy Appeal in memory of the fallen and the future of the living.

We are ever mindful of the sacrifices made by our armed forces, including more recent conflicts, the debt we owe to the brave people who protect our country and its way of life is as real today as it ever was.

The RBL created the Poppy Appeal to help those returning from the First World War and over a century on they are still helping today’s armed forces families.

The poppy is a powerful symbol, worn to commemorate the sacrifices of our armed forces and to show support to those serving today and their loved ones.

We ask everyone to support the work of the Royal British Legion.

Jane Storey

Chairman, Suffolk County Council
