Where does the hassle come from, John?
All sorts. Poppy vendors. People in church. Strangers on the street. Relatives.
I support the British Legion with a donation. My grandfather was a conscientious objector who was first imprisoned then given a job as a refuse collector. My father was a CO but went into the RAMC. He was captured at Dunkirk and spent 4 years as a POW. My great uncle lost his life. I remember them all with pride.
