Poppy Appeal – Header Image Update

Sunday October 31, 2010

Updated the blog header image today to show support for the Poppy Appeal 2010.

As custodians of Remembrance, The Royal British Legion through the Poppy Appeal, provide ways for commemorating those who are no longer with us.

Each November, Fields of Remembrance are set up in London and Cardiff with Remembrance Crosses available for personal dedications. In 2008, a special Flanders’ Field of Poppies was created to commemorate the end of the First World War and was so popular, it was repeated in 2009.

Other special anniversaries have been commemorated such as the 25th Anniversary of the Falklands and D-Day 65. And watch out for details of the 65th anniversary of VE Day on 8 May 2010.

More information about the Two-Minute Silence, Remembrance Sunday and the Remembrance Festival is available on the Legion’s website.

Update, 23rd November 2010: Header now returned to the standard DoD image.

  1. I support all the Royal British Legion do. An uncle of mine, an only son, was killed in the First World War. I have copies of the documents.
