Remembered Today:

Poppy wreaths?


fotonix

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'm really surprised at how difficult it seems to be to source poppy wreaths online. My local British Legion is largely inactive, so there's not much doing there.

Anyone know of decent suppliers who can send within the UK?

Thanks,

John.

Have you tried the WFA?

Jon

I have now! Although I did eventually get through to someone who could help, it's very disjointed and doesn't leave a very good impression, making you wonder how much money they/RBL must lose out on through having such rubbish lines of communication and poor websites leading to dead-ends in many cases. Not very military at all!

I will try that! Here is the order form and catalogue I got from the RBL if anyone is interested, reproduced at large size so you can read it properly. To be honest, I think I'll try HarryBetts DCM MM first! I suppose I did one good deed today in giving the RBL some feedback on their rubbish promotion of wreaths, which the office claimed to have sent to the Head of the Poppy Appeal. Let's hope someone takes notice! If you look at the bottom of the order form, it seems they haven't updated the 'prices' since 2006 - even with today's inflation figures. Tsch!

I'm glad that fotonix posted the info as I've never had any problems getting poppy wreaths and poppy crosses for my visits to cemeteries from the site mentioned.

Is there a list available of the 3,000 badges they have available?

That would make interesting reading.

Cheers,

Nigel

I ordered two wreaths from HarryBetts DCMMM before I made my trip to the UK and the items were waiting for me when I arrived. Great Service. Thanks again Roger.

Cheers Rob.
