I'd just got my own poppy yesterday, so decided to make one for my mini-me Zoe! It's made of red and black card and a pin.
This is a Scottish poppy - it's got 4 petals and no leaf. It wasn't until last year that I realised the Scottish and English poppies are different (I always assumed the newsreaders got special ones with a leaf because they are on TV!).
The photograph is of my great-great uncle George Albert Victor Roberts who died at the Somme.
