Veterans launch Hampshire 2012 poppy appeal

World War II veterans of operations including D-Day and Arnhem joined servicemen and women at Middle Wallop in Hampshire for the launch of the county's Royal British Legion annual Poppy Appeal.

Last year's collection raised £1.3m in the county.

Recent operations in Afghanistan and Iraq mean the Legion is increasingly dealing with calls for help from a new generation of veterans.
