annual Poppy Appeal in aid of the British
Legion. Red poppies are sold for two
weeks prior to Remembrance Day and

World War I and during the first two
weeks in November a series of events will
be taking place at the BSK campus to
commemorate this special milestone.

returned from visiting some of the battlefields in France including Verdun and the
Somme and an exhibition of memorabilia
and photographs is being mounted in the
