County council team commemorates war heroes
The Continuing Care Team planted poppies at the Tower of London in memory of those who fought and died in the Great War.
It was a very personal event for many of the Surrey staff.
Jan Gilpin said her grandfather, who was born in 1897 and served in the Essex Regiment, was plagued by the war for life and never spoke of it.
