This year's Poppy Appeal by the Royal British Legion is particularly poignant, it is the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War. The 1914-1918 War was, of course, the war that was supposed to end all wars. Yet, several wars later, British and American servicemen are still giving their lives in the cause of freedom.
The Poppy Appeal began yesterday, and will, as usual, end on Remembrance Sunday, which this year will be on November 9th.
This year's RBL song was recorded by Joss Stone, featuring the guitar of Jeff Beck.
