Poppy Appeal 2019
The poppy has been a poignant symbol of remembrancefor almost a century, with millions of commemorative flowers produced each year to honour Britain's war dead.
It was adopted as a symbol of remembrance by The British Legion a charity established to provide support for members and veterans of the British Armed Forces and their families.
The appeal has grown from manufacturing poppies in a room above a shop in Bermondsey, South London to a facility in Richmond where 50 ex-servicemen and women work all year round producing tens of millions of the symbolic flowers.
From humble beginnings, the Royal British Legion's poppy appeal has gone on to raise hundreds of millions of pounds for charity.
Poppies are available at The Ivers Parish Council Offices 45B High Street, Iver.
