Default poppy

Can anyone advise how to tell good from bad on these badges ? ie RBL as opposed to copies.

Cheers, Mark

It looks like they have removed the "British" part of the title , at a first glance it seems to be R Poppy L or even R.O.L!
Regarding the new RBL logo badge , someone in the supermarket asked where I got the “Ralph Lauren” remembrance badge !

Thumbs up RBL Riders

The RBL Riders Branches have a lot of badges produced which they usually sell at their Rides/Rallies etc. They have made various 'biker' and 'commemorative' (what I term "Poppy Head" ) pins .

Possibly due lockdown/covid I guess their outdoor activities have been restricted and they now have some of these pins available on-line from the RBL Riders Store.

NB. Each year the Isle of Man also produce/sell 'biker' Poppy Head pins but theirs have the traditional RBL poppy with leaf.

I chuckled when I read that...some people are unbelievable.........then again, if it helps to sell the poppy badges it might be worth giving it a try.......I can see it now...an RAF poppy badge could be advertised as ‘a Renoir Alfresco Francini’ poppy! The possibilities are endless!
