Pop­pies with a dif­fer­ence to mark cen­te­nary

Argyllshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

Re­mem­brance Day this year takes on a par­tic­u­lar poignancy as it falls 100 years af­ter the end of the First World War.

To mark the oc­ca­sion, Poppy Scot­land has cre­ated a spe­cial type of poppy with gold let­ter­ing em­bossed on the petals, avail­able for a slightly greater do­na­tion than the usual.

Con­ven­tional pop­pies will be avail­able, but there will be a lim­ited num­ber of the spe­cial edi­tion among them. They will be avail­able from Poppy Day on Satur­day Novem­ber 10 in Mid Ar­gyll.
