If anyone spots any please let me know , thanks.

This is the latest Poppy Pin available from PoppyShop for £4.99.

Don't know if this one is going to be available long term or if it is a 'trail run' to see how well they sell.

Picked up this Nottingham Poppy Appeal 95 pin , a completely different design/style from their earlier pins (I have 1990 and 1991 round pins).

Another set of "commemorative" badges , D-Day / VE Day / VJ Day , and again nothing that indicates they are RBL .

If they had put a small poppy in one corner it would at least show they were 'Legion' , as it is they could have been made/sold by anyone.

Hi Mike do you buy any of the Scottish pin badges as they have some nice new ones as well I've just ordered a few to go with my English ones.

The 2021 versions are around ........ but not yet from PoppyShop ! :(

I assume they have been ordered by Welsh/ROI branches/PAO's and will be available on line at some point but was disappointed to see that ROI one has already appeared on eBay.

I know there are other 'special' pins this year and hope that branches can benefit from fundraising before they too appear on eBay.
