Poppies at Mytchett Heath

The centenary of the start of the First World War and the British Legion’s initiative ‘to cover the country in poppies’ has been supported across the nation with functions to raise funds for the Legion. The poppies are particularly lovely in the extensive grounds at Mytchett Heath, Surrey, just a few miles from the home of the British Army at Aldershot.
