Poppy trib­utes

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

A cross sym­bol­i­cally made from scrap tim­ber and fea­tur­ing knit­ted pop­pies went on dis­play at Hor­sham RSL this week.

Com­bined Probus Club of Hor­sham pres­i­dent Kola Kennedy, with help from knit­ter Julie Sav­age, made the cross to com­mem­o­rate the cen­te­nary of An­zac.

The pair also worked on a knit­ted poppy wreath for the Royal Vic­to­rian As­so­ci­a­tion of Hon­orary Jus­tices Wim­mera Branch for a com­mem­o­ra­tion ser­vice in Hor­sham yes­ter­day.

The red pop­pies rep­re­sent soldiers, red and white, nurses, white, civil­ians and pur­ple, an­i­mals in­volved in armed con­flict.
