Police Poppy Car

Devon and Cornwall Police Chief Constable, Shaun Sawyer, said:

“The two poppy cars this year are part of our Remembrance Service where we continue to support our armed forces in a public way, particularly as we mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.

“Around 360 police officers from the two counties served in the armed forces during the war with 34 losing their lives.  This year we have invited members of their families to join our service at HQ to learn about their stories and remember their sacrifice.

“We hope that the car will remind people of the sacrifices that were made and encourage people to go out and buy a poppy ahead of this year’s Remembrance Day and actively engage with the Royal British Legion’s campaign.”

The car visited all the schools in the area for a photo.
