Since 2001, over 220 members of the Armed Forces have been killed in Afghanistan, and more than 300 wounded in Helmand Province, alone.

And under the motto, "For their sake, wear a poppy", the Royal British Legion's 2009 Poppy Appeal in Devon will highlight the need for support for the wounded and bereaved of Afghanistan.

Peter D. Williams of Devon Royal British Legion said: "We will call upon the people of Exmouth to honour the fallen, and to care for the injured and their families, by wearing a Poppy.

"The funds raised through our annual Poppy Appeal help provide emotional and financial support for those Servicemen, and their families, who are trying to rebuild their lives.
