Poppies Help Us To Remember

**If the piece of poppy jewelry you buy does not make a contribution to armed forces charities then maybe you would consider making a contribution of your own.**

Wear Your Remembrance Day Flower With Pride

Remembrance Day: 11:11 on the 11th November

On the anniversary of the end of the First World War, at the eleventh minute of the eleventh hour of the eleventh month, people all around the world gather at cenotaphs and war memorials to lay poppy wreaths and pay tribute to the millions of soldiers who were killed.

The poppy is the traditional Remembrance day flower that people wear, and in the UK this raises money for the British Legion, who support the armed forces community. It is becoming more popular for jewellery to be sold, with a percentage of the proceeds being donated to the British Legion.

2014, sees the centenary of the start of the Great War, and all over the world people will be remembering the men who bravely fought for freedom, and those who never returned home to their families, the women who supported them and the children who were not fortunate to have met them.


Oxidised Silver Poppy Charm

For UK Shoppers

The genuine Pandora poppy charm is not available from Amazon in the UK, but this oxidised sterling silver poppy charm from TaoTaoHas is very similar.

The poppy charm to the right is made up of a cluster of three poppies that are colored with red enamel.

This charm would add a lovely touch to any Pandora style charm bracelet.

Genuine Pandora Poppy Charm

This authentic poppy charm from Pandora is my favorite piece of poppy jewelry. I had this charm on my first ever Pandora bracelet, but earlier this year I was unfortunate enough to lose it, and am waiting for my replacement charm to be shipped to me.

I think its the simplicity of this charm that I love. Pandora charms are made from sterling silver and are cast to a very high standard. Combine that with the poppy red enamel detail in the leaves and it just oozes with style.

This charm would look just as poignant worn around your neck as it would on your wrist, and after losing my first charm I think that is where I will be putting mine, on a plain black leather Pandora necklace.

In Flanders Field.....

My Grandma had two uncles who were killed in Flanders in 1916, and although she was only two years of age it had a profound effect on her.

These were her mother's brothers, brothers she had raised as her own, and the family never forgot them.

It is for my Uncle Frank Toner and Uncle Joe Toner that I wear my poppy charm with pride.

      I have a poppy hat pin and thank you for the reminder to grab it off my hat and wear it on my T-shirt today in honor of Veterans.

      We must NEVER forget those sacrifices. I am an ex-serviceman and wear my poppy badge with pride every day of the year!
