Poppy Colors


HI MARTY,

 

WELL TODAY THE 11TH OF NOVEMBER   IS REMEMBRANCE DAY , SHALL WE NEVER FORGET ALL THE BRAVE PARKERS THAT WENT TO WAR TO GIVE US A BETTER LIFE IN G.PK.  SOME PAID THE ULTIMATE PRICE, AND NEVER CAME BACK. GOD BLESS OUR G.PK. HEROES.

 

MARTY ON SUNDAY I HAD MY OLD  POPPY WITH A GREEN CENTER , AND I SAW THE OTHER ONES HAD A BLACK CENTER, NOBODY COULD ANSWER ME WHY, I DID A LITTLE RESEARCH . ORIGINALLY THEY WHERE BLACK, BUT ABOUT 20 YEARS AGO THEY WHERE  CHANGED TO GREEN   TO REPRESENT THE GREEN FIELDS OF FRANCE. BUT IN 2002 THEY WHERE CHANGED TO THE ORIGINAL BLACK TO REFLECT THE POPPIES THAT GROW IN FLANDERS BELGIUM.

 

THANKS MARTY

 

PS THANK YOU  G.PK. SOLDIERS LET'S  HAVE 1 MINUTE OF SILENCE .

 

Thanks Normand
