Charles Dance has denounced those who refuse to wear Poppies on Remembrance Sunday.
'When I hear stuff about people moaning and questioning stuff about wearing the poppy it really upsets me,' he tells me. 'How dare they when these guys have made such sacrifices for us all?'
The 72-year-old Game Of Thrones star was speaking at Jermyn Street shirtmaker Emma Willis's Art In The Aftermath exhibition, which features creative work produced by ex military staff, many traumatised by war.
'Wearing a poppy is not just about the centenary of the end of World War I,' adds Dance.
'It is marking and remembering the whole squalid business of war. It is a very small thing to do for what these guys have done for us.'
