A poignant cameo moment during the launch of the Downham Poppy Appeal as a standard bearer lowers his head in prayers. In the background the town's famous click tower standard as a reminder to make the most of time. Combine the two images and we are impelled to remember those who have made that possible, and we will wear our poppies with pride
