Thumbs up London Ambulance Service

Saw a small lot of what I thought were the 2021 "Royal British Legion 100 years" badges , there were 2 of them but also some "RBL 100 LAS 2021" ones !

The lot arrived this morning and it is excellent pin that I thought I had missed .

The pins came directly from an RBL branch in Wales .

Last year the dated Poppy Pins came out in May due to the RBL Centenary , I wonder what reason they will give for PoppyShop selling 2022 dated pins in January !

I know Branches benefitted from selling dated pins during Poppy Week but if they are readily available for 10 months who is going to be buying them in November .

Earlist I have seen one!
£5 plus £3.99 is a bit steep for some people! I will keep an eye on the Poppy Appeal portal...

No new Rugby Poppy Pins for 6 Nations as yet.

Some Appeals got no 100th anniversary pins and little or no dated pins...

Aylsford Order Portal as you today have no Dated 2022 pins or Rugby Pins to order.

Just double checked and discovered I ordered my 2021 poppy pin from PoppyShop on 20th February but assumed they were doing that because of the Centenary in May . This year just seems ridiculously early and not good for PAO's/Branches.

Exclamation Fakes !

A seller I have previously posted about is now getting ridiculous !

He is offering a fake set of 2006/2007/2008 poppy pins , he claims to have "12 kilo,s of different ones i purchased from a liquidation sale.!" which means he's had batches made (probably in China). The fact he has included a tape measure , which shows they are the wrong size , indicates he knows nothing about these pins.

I have informed RBL and "Help for Heroes" (10% of the sale of this item will benefit Help for Heroes) about this listing and also reported it to eBay !

Default Legion Companion

I picked up this badge in 2019 (there is also a silver tone version) but had no idea if it was an official badge , a branch item or a commericial/souvenir pin.

Yesterday I spotted one on eBay (sold very quickly !) , it came with a card/booklet(?) which shows it was an official badge.

I still don't know the who or why but wonder if it was given to donors like the "Poppy Supporter" badge today ?
