Pansies Mandy? Go wash your mouth out with soap young lady!
Didn't see Clarkson & co playing at truckers, no Twiggs. Sounds like fun though.
Quite big enough I think D, and no, I'm not compensating for anything.
Boet, the Poppy is a symbol of remembrance. 11 nov is remembrance day in the UK (1st world war ended at 11am on 11th day of 11th month 1918.
Why the Poppy? It loves to grow in loose earth, ground that has recently been turned over (or blown up) and there was plenty of that around in Belgium and France in 1918. A sea of mud would turn into a field of red almost overnight.

Sorry Tom, been looking around for you but can't find it.
A friend of mine got it for me last year, cost ten quid (donation to the poppy appeal), not sure where he got them from, I'll be fitting it again this week, donation already sent to RBL.
