Default New pin

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.
