Friday 55 Flash Fiction #179 Remembrance..

It was a long time ago,

his memory wasn’t what it once was.

He couldn't remember the name of the comrade
who had fallen at his side on the battlefield in WWII.

He would always honour his memory though,

by buying a poppy

and wearing it with pride

On 11th November, Remembrance Day.

Will you?

Friday 55 Flash Fiction is brought to you by G-man (Mr Knowitall). The idea is you write a story in exactly 55 words. If you want to take part pop over and let G-man know when you've posted your 55.

This is a good bit of flash fiction, what flash fiction should be, thought provoking and we make up our own "background story" to flesh your words out.

Poppies are a great way to remember soldiers as a sign of gratitude respect and bravery.
