4th August, 1914 to 4th August 2014

A day of memories for me today,  this is was the day my father was born on 4th August, 1914 and he would have been 100 hundred years old,   it is also the day the first war world began,  and the day the Queen Mother was born.
When my father was shaving in the morning he used to have the radio on and they played the national anthem for the Queen Mothers birthday he always said they played it for him too.
We should never forget the sacrifice that our countrymen made for our country,  time might go on but they should never be forgotten


  1. I love Poppies! Had to smile about your dad saying they played the National Anthem for him - and why not!!! Michelle x

  2. a happy 100th to your Dad looking down on you!
    It was said to be a war to end all wars BUT we do not seem to have moved on much.......
    remembering all those who gave their lives for us today.

  3. Hi Margaret. A lovely story about your Father. It reminds me of when I was young. I was born on our Queen's birthday and my Mother used to tell me that they were firing the guns in Hyde Park just for me..

  4. Sounds exactly like something my own Dad would have said as he shaved...he was a pilot in WW2 and my kids called him Poppy.. I never associated it with the flower till he was gone.... Now I do .
