  3. I crocheted some Poppies this year and gave a donation here in the UK. My Great Uncle was in the First War and was injured so was sent home. He was left with a permanent limp which I just remember as I was very young. He was considered one of the lucky ones, not sure how he felt as he never discussed it.
    We are luckycompared to some parts of the world.
