My white poppy is a remembrance of all victims of war. To all armed forces personnel, whatever side they are fighting on. And the civilians who are killed in wars. All those who have been imprisoned and victimised for resisting war. For the child soldiers and conscripts who have been forced to fight. My poppy is a challenge to those who try to glamourise war. It is a challenge to those who make money from war.
The Barnbow Lasses who died in service of WW1 should be remembered, and so should their exploitation and terrible waste of life.
