Madame Guérin’s Legacy : The Remembrance Poppy we wear today.
Remembrance of all those who have given their lives in war.
Helping the families of the fallen and the survivors.
This beautiful, fragile poppy … pressed for posterity … was plucked by A.E.F. Driver Rupert George Cooke from the Pozières battlefield in May 1917. After that poignant act, he sent it home to his family in New South Wales, Australia. Rupert; his hand-written note; and other documentation give the poppy its provenance.
