Shipley MP Philip Davies: Why I wear my poppy with pride
8:00am Monday 4th November 2013 in News
Shipley MP Philip Davies has told why he wears his poppy in the run up to Remembrance Day.
“I wear a poppy to salute and commemorate all those who have lost their lives serving our country in the armed forces to protect the freedoms we too often take for granted,” he said.
“Their selflessness and courage must never be forgotten. I also wear a poppy to support the fantastic work the Royal British Legion do to help those former members of the armed forces who need help and support.
“Given what those brave people have done for our country, it is the very least we can do.”
