Requesting The Song To Be Played On The Radio
Phone calls, letters or emails to radio stations requesting to hear Olly's song and to TV shows requesting live performances would be helpful, but please do this in a responsible manner.
Help With Press Releases To Newspapers, Radio & TV

Websites & Blogs
If you have a website or a blog please provide a link to our website. Limited parts of the poem or lyrics can be included on your site or blog, providing you adhere to the Copyright conditions
Mailing List / Launch Events
We plan to have some launch events in both Surrey and London. In most of these we hope that you will have the opportunity to not only see a comprehensive live set from Olly (including the 'Remember Poppy Day single) but also Sam's superb set.  Either live act is a treat, but the opportunity to see both is not to be missed.  Georgi will be playing on saxophone in as many gigs as work commitments allow and we have other great sax players at hand if necessary.
To be kept informed of gigs and other news, please join our mailing list by sending an email with your name, town and country to
Debate & Forum
The messages in the poem and song are sincere and we would like to gently encourage people to take a little time to think about those who have made sacrifices.
Is there a need for some debate on the issue? Does it need some decision makers to either encourage the break or make it easier for those who wish to participate? If you're in a meeting' for example, its difficult for an individual unless someone takes an initiative and organises a planned 2 minute break. In the past, radio stations on all channels would stop to announce and observe the 2 minutes silence, which was both respectful and also a useful reminder.
If you would like to be involved in this debate, we have a discussion section on our new Facebook pages for you to exchange ideas and make suggestions that would be helpful. If you would like to suggest new discussion topics, or you are not on Facebook, please send an email to
Historical & Other Educational Resources
 We have a selection of other Remembrance Day Poems & Songs on this website. We will soon be adding historical information and other educational content too. If you have any photos or information you wish to contribute, please send an email to
Free Use In Schools & Other Establishments For Educational Purposes
We have had a lot of comments from teachers saying they find this song useful in explaining to children or youths about Remebrance Day. We are happy for the song to be downloaded from this site free of charge for such a purpose or for assemblies. If you wish to recommend this to your local school, that would be fine.

ďI looked at the website and after listening to the song and seeing the photos I was filled with such emotion that I am still crying now as I write this email.
You have done an incredible job putting this together and I really do feel privileged to be part of it. I wish everyone huge success.Ē
