A shopkeeper in St John’s is asking for the public’s help as he puts together his annual Remembrance Day display.

Allan Price usually marks the day with a display of military items and poppies in the window of St John’s Shoe Repairs.

This year he’s hoping to include photos of St John’s people serving in the military.

“I come from a military family - my stepdad, grandfather and uncles served, although I never served myself,” said Allan.

“The display is something I like to do, to give back to the people of St John’s. It’s a lovely area to live and has a great military history.

“I also collect military bits and pieces and this is a way of bringing the two things together.

“It’s good to get people thinking - and it’s not just about poppies and the First World War, it’s about everything that’s happened since then as well.”

Allan said people often call into the shop to tell him how much they like his Remembrance Day displays, which usually go up around a week before the day itself.

“People often bring in little trinkets and things from their military service or their grandparents’, so I thought this year I could base it on a photographic display.

“I’ve got a few of my relatives and mates from St John’s, and I’ve put it out on Facebook and had a few brought in, but I need a lot more.”

Anyone who’d like a photo of themselves or a family member serving in the military to be included in the display can drop a copy of the photo into the shop, at 14 St John’s.
