Royal Canadian Legion Poppy Campaign underway

For example, you can buy from one of our trusted volunteers, from The Royal British Legion's online Poppy Shop, or from one of our corporate partners.

However, the Royal British Legion has defended those who wear white, and other coloured poppies, including purple, which remembers the huge number of animals which have died in conflict.

"We would urge everyone wishing to purchase a Remembrance poppy brooch, to do so through official channels".

People in Gedling borough are being asked to look out for counterfeit goods in the shape, or bearing the image of, the RBL's familiar two-petal red poppy.

Legion Branch 26 President, Jim White, tells Castanet they are trying something new this year along with the traditional poppy campaign, "we're doing the field of crosses".

"It's mostly for youth and veterans", including the Leave the Streets Behind program for homeless veterans, and service dogs for those suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, said Paglia.

The digital version is downloaded after an online donation and can be used a social media profile photo.

Five reasons to stop turning the clocks back
Originally, this was to contribute towards the war effort, since there was more light in the evenings. The clock changes this weekend marking the start of official winter time.

"You send that thing out in the common domain, then we've lost control and we actually, legally, (would be) losing control of the poppy trademark".

The poppy is worn from the last Friday in October to the eleventh hour on the eleventh day of the eleventh month.

Danny Martin says it's also meant to address our "increasingly cashless society", and make poppies available in parts of Canada where they may be hard to find.

Donations to the Poppy Appeal will go towards helping the Legion support the Armed Forces community of today, through hardship, injury and bereavement.

South Vancouver Island Zone Commander Richard Steele says you can donate and get a poppy, a special symbol of remembrance.

Publicity material for the digital poppy featured endorsements by celebrity Canadians including Margaret Atwood, Ashley Callingbull and Don Cherry, who dedicated his poppy to his great uncle, Sgt. Thomas William MacKenzie.
