This year marks 100 years since the end of the First World War and in addition to the poppies it produces the Royal British Legion is selling a range of products for those who would like to mark the occasion.
New for this year is the Women Of The War Brooch (pictured above right). Dedicated to the memory of the women who served and lost their lives, each brooch comes with a certificate commem- orating the life of one of those killed. The brooch costs £29.99 and is available online.
Also on sale is the Poignat Pin, a poppy created from leather by a company in Yeovil which has been making gloves since 1826 and supplied First World War servicemen. All profits raised go to The Royal British Legion. Go to poppyshop.org.uk for more information and other products
