I always get one when I see them down here in Hobart. But the last few years the old fella's who offer them are getting pretty scarce. Same with Legacy which is a charity for soldiers and their families down here. Ex servicemen on street corners trying to raise money selling badges and bits and bobs during Legacy week but they seem to be scarce as well. Sign of the times unfortunately. Lest we forget.

Thing I've noticed is not so many street sellers around,been in Brighton,MK,London Central,
last week or so...same thing,very few..Might be the reason,but Def not so many people wearing them
as used to.
Lets hope the services are still well attended...they usually are.

More of the small metal ones around..maybe not so noticeable.

the mostly lefties (cunts) as always have done a lot of damage to the annual poppy appeal....they generally hate standing up for the country and those that have fallen for it...
cashless payments isnt helping, fewer and fewer carrying cash on them...

Here's the link to volunteer to sell poppies so all you moaning about the lack of volunteers get off your arses and actually do something.

Spending 1 or 2 quid a year means nothing. Show the veterans how much you really care.
