Carved this hand in lime, a poppy being picked from the fields of Flanders not realising what the poppy would come to represent, the cascading petals represents fallen soldiers of all nations.
In memory of my great grandfather Frederick Stephens who served throughout WW1 and my great uncle Albert Payne who is still in France.

I am no carver and can struggle with the Sunday roast but that looks pretty darn good to me. A great way to remember them.
Regards

Amazing Steve and a wonderful way to remember those who fought and never returned home. For future generations you really should add a plaque remembering your dad and uncle.

I never thought of a plaque but that’s a good idea
