WWII - Silver Poppy of Remembrance
Council wishes to recognise the contribution of those who fought in that War from Northern Ireland.
Every year the number of our surviving veterans is reducing and the time to provide public and appropriate recognition is running out. We will, therefore, provide all surviving veterans of WW2 (including those in the Merchant Navy) who reside in our Borough with a Silver Poppy of Remembrance to mark their service in the fight against Fascism and Nazism. These Poppies will be presented to all surviving Veterans at a special event to coincide with VE Day commemorations during May 2020.
