Wear Your Poppy With Pride

I've been disgusted by reports of various bans enforced on poppies this year. First a facebook campaign forced Poundland to make a u-turn on their veto and now Prince William has stepped in to call on FIFA to back down on their ruling.

We should never forget the sacrifice paid by the men and women who have lost their lives in combat, and wearing a poppy is a potent symbol of the remembrance and respect they deserve.

The Royal British Legion sell a range of poppy jewellery, including beautiful crystal encrusted brooches and charms by Buckley. With proceeds supporting the Armed Forces and their families, you can wear your poppy with pride this Remembrance Day.
