Well-wishers Brave the Cold for the Launch of Weymouth's Poppy Appeal


1:46pm 26th October 2012

A hundred thousand petals have been released along Weymouth seafront to remember our service men and women who've died in the line of duty.

Dorset's Royal British Legion launched the County's Poppy appeal at a special ceremony this lunchtime (Friday 26th October 2012).

Veterans, serving soldiers, school children and dozens of well-wishers all braved the freezing winds near the sea life tower to remember those who've made the ultimate sacrifice.
