This year’s Remembrance Display was centred around the Korean War – often called The Forgotten War.
The display consisted of 108 ceramic Hibiscus flowers, the National flower of Korea.
Each flower represented 10 British troops who lost their lives in the Korean War, the total number of British fatalities being 1,078.
The arrangement of the flowers depicted the outline of Korea.
The display was set up around the pulpit in St. Mary’s Church for the Brixham Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance Service last Wednesday evening, and again at Brixham Cenotaph for the Remembrance Service on Sunday.
It will now be given to Brixham Battery where it will be on display.
The flowers were hand made by Izzie Lomas who has made all the Brixham Poppies to raise funds for the Brixham Royal British Legion and Pride in Brixham.
Last year’s donations raised £2,800 and this year has raised almost £2,500 so far.
Remember at Christmas.
Izzie will be at the Sunday Christmas Market in Fore Street this Sunday morning, outside Barclay’s Bank (weather permitting), with some Christmas themed Poppy items, because – ‘We don’t stop remembering after November’.
All proceeds will again be split between Brixham Legion and Pride in Brixham.
