Today starts the Poppy Appeal 2018.
On the 11th November, 100 years ago the guns fell silent on the world’s first truly global war.
“This Poppy Appeal, The Royal British Legion is leading the Nation in saying ‘Thank You’ to the First World War generation who served, sacrificed and changed our world.”
May’s comment: The Royal British Legion provides lifelong support for the Armed Forces community – serving men and women, veterans, and their families.
Buy and wear a poppy – a way of saying thank you to the First World War generation. 100% of the profits go to the Royal British Legion. We hope you will support their efforts to raise £50million this year.
