Buying poppy crosses

Recommended Posts

JBee

Hi all

 

As usual I've run out of time and am wanting to buy approx 20 of the small wooden poppy crosses for my visit to the Somme next week.

 

I drive to Dover on Sunday then ferry to Calais Monday morning.

 

I had planned to have a run to the Nat. Arboretum where I've bought some before, but not had chance.

 

Can we buy them anywhere in France, say at Thiepval?  Or maybe the museum in Albert?

 

I'm so cross with myself! Been so busy planning the trip I've run out of time to sort these out and it's important to me.

 

Anyone who can assist? Much appreciated.

 

Jill

I think you can buy them at Thiepval.

Thiepval has them, JBee. Many other places have them, too.

Thanks guys,

 

A lovely lady in the Sheffield British Legion has put me some to one side to collect tomorrow.

 

All good!

Ah… the usual question… I surprised the lady at the Grenadier Bookshop last week with a request of 15!! That's to last the marching team for a few months...

 

Have a nice trip!!!
