A fleet of poppies

As the centenary of Armistice Day approached, Fuel Oil News was pleased to see photographs of tankers with large red poppies.

Knowing that the origins of many early fuel distribution businesses came about post war, their tributes to the fallen are very apt.

At Gleaner Oils, Emma Golledge said:

“Whilst there is no direct link between the founders and the Armed Forces, our head office in Elgin is situated next to an RAF base and an Army base, so many of our staff and customers in the area have very strong links to the military.”

Dave Marsh at Marsh Fuels in Berkshire said:

“As individuals and as a company we like to show our respect for those who gave their lives in the service of the Armed Forces and for those who serve today.”

If your company has a photograph to share, please send to
