PUPILS at St Joseph’s in Launceston have put on quite a display to mark this year’s Remembrance.

The red poppy is the most famous symbol used to commemorate those who sacrificed their lives in World War One and conflicts that followed. Last year all of the junior school made a red poppy to create this collaborative piece. 

This year they have all made a purple poppy, which is often worn to remember animals that have been victims of war.

Animals like horses, dogs and pigeons were often drafted into the war effort. In particular, many horses were killed or injured in World War One. A spokesperson said: “Well done to all our junior school students, a moving tribute to those who gave their lives “Lest we forget”.
