That time of the year has come around again, when Britain seeks to commemorate the sacrifices of its Armed Forces, and show support to those still serving today, veterans and their loved ones.

As a shining symbol of remembrance, the Royal British Legion has created a special edition of the poppy brooch this year. The symbolic poppy now features hand painted red coloured enamel with a black crystal centre, and can be purchased in both gold and silver tones.

If you’re thinking that a brooch is not your style, then worry not. Here are six things you can buy from the Poppy Shop to support the Royal British Legion:

Hand-made and poured in the UK, these candles come in very stylish glass jars with the words “lest we forget” engraved on them. The collection offers an array of fragrances, and is made with a blend of natural and essential oils, so you can decide on which best suits your home.

This poppy print 1950’s style dress with its flared skirt and high neckline creates a modern yet timelessly elegant dress. There are other dresses with different designs should you decide this particular one is not to your taste.
