A PHOTOGRAPH honouring the fallen in The Great War is raising money for the Royal British Legion Spain Poppy Appeal
The emotive image entitled ‘Fallen Hero’ was created by Sue Evans LRPS CPAGB.
“I was given this piece of trench art by a friend, a cap made from a brass gun shell”, the photographer explained.
“It was made by an unknown soldier during the First World War. I felt the cap resting on a bed of poppies would be a fitting tribute to those who gave their lives during The Great War.”
RBL Spain has 100 signed copies. Contact your local branch to purchase a print at a cost of €10.
All proceeds go to the RBL Poppy Appeal.
