Pupils of a school which served as a hospital during World War One planted 1,000 plastic poppies for Armistice Day.

Students at Royds Hall School, Paddock, planted the flowers with help from children from its feeder schools Beech Early Years I&N School, Golcar; St Johns CE J&I School, Golcar and Golcar J&I School.

The poppies were made from plastic bottles, supplied by Shepley Spring bottled water company, which were sprayed red by pupils.

Margaret Charlesworth and Gemma Frampton, the mother and sister of fallen soldier Anton Frampton, planted poppies around a memorial bench to Pte Frampton.

Pte Frampton, a former Royds Hall School pupil, was killed in March 2012 along with two other Huddersfield soldiers from the Yorkshire Regiment, Cpl Jake Hartley and Pte Daniel Wilford.
