AM Paul Davies supports the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal

Preseli Pembrokeshire AM Paul Davies is pictured with the Royal British Legion’s “Poppy Man” in a bid to remind everyone to support the 2009 Poppy Appeal.

Mr Davies also met veterans who have recently served in Iraq and Afghanistan at the special event held in Cardiff.

The Poppy Man is the embodiment of the Legion’s work, and stands for Help, Remembrance and Comradeship, a symbol of vital importance given the increasing need to help the men and women who are serving today, as well as the ex-Service community and their dependants.

Claire Williams from the British Legion said: “I am delighted that Paul made the time to meet with the Poppy Man as well as veterans today. It is vital that we continue to remember the serving and ex-Serving community, especially at a time when our troops are fighting in Afghanistan .”

Mr Davies added: “I am delighted to support the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal in Wales. The Legion does very important helping bereaved families and wounded personnel as part of the whole Armed Forces family. I hope that people will be as generous as they can be when supporting the Poppy Appeal”
