A Time To Remember

This is the time of year when we stop and think about all those great servicemen and women who have served our country in various conflicts, in order that we can enjoy the lifestyles we have today. This year is especially significant, as it marks the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the Great War.

The Royal British Legion was set up in 1921 following the war, and each year sells poppies as a symbol of remembrance.

It can't have escaped your notice that the performers on Strictly Come Dancing all wear special, sparkly poppies.

Once again, the Royal British Legion have joined with Marks & Spencer, meaning you can wear the same poppy as the stars of Strictly. The range includes the sparkly poppies in two sizes, plus cufflinks, pins and a bracelet. The charity is hoping to raise £750,000 from the collection.
