Lest We Forget: Adelaide Poppy Display
Residents and staff at Adelaide Care Home, in Bexleyheath, put on quite the display in their reception area in honour of Remembrance Day on 11th November.
In the lead up to the day, residents spent some downtime painting red poppies for the display. Also featured were purple poppies, introduced by the charity Animal Aid in 2006, which recognise the animals whose lives were lost during the war.
Staff carefully decorated the area with war memorabilia, including newspaper replicas of the day The First World War was announced for visitors to see.
This year, The Royal British Legion marks 100 years since the nation’s collective Remembrance traditions were first brought together, which means marking the occasion was more poignant than ever.
