I'm afraid this bling, now being increasingly worn by "opinion formers" on the box, rather irritates me. What is wrong with the bog standard poppy, with leaves set at whatever "o'clock" takes your fancy? You can pay £13.98 for them (or any amount you wish, greater or smaller) and hence give more money net to the RBL These brooches are a bit of a statement of how generous one has been this year (or was it last year, or even the year before that?). The poppy is a mark of remembrance that contributes to the good work done by the RBL. It is not about grandstanding, or shouldn't be...

Everyone's entitled to their own opinion. Personally I'm not a fan of the paper poppies (the item itself, not what it represents). This year I bought a Somme 1916 Poppy, not because it was expensive and to show off how much I'd spent, but because it was made from shells off the battlefield and is dedicated to an individual soldier. To me that means much more and for the first time in years made me really stop and think about the sacrifice that all of those people made. In previous years I've just worn a paper poppy because that's what everyone does, without giving it much thought.

I bought a 'bling' poppy a couple of years ago. I also was fortunate enough to get a ceramic poppy from the tower of London. I will still buy one of these. The reason I prefer these is, as a brooch the pin is secure and as a nurse i can pin this to my uniform and secure it safely without having a loose pin which could fall out with a paper version. Each to their own as previous poster said.

Totally agree. Except I bought this for my son who is a jeweller and appreciates the workmanship and I appreciate the opportunity to give a bit more than the usual £1 for the paper version.

Every donation helps, at £14.99 not everyone has the spare money to afford these, so at £9.99 it makes them available to more people. If you can afford £14.99, there's nothing stopping you buying one of these and donating an extra £5

I think the idea of buying a 'proper' poppy is that they are only temporary just like the real thing, if you buy this or similar it will last for years and you won't go and buy the charity ones.

Baffling post. Every time you walk past a poppy seller or vendor is an opportunity to give more than £1. More of your money would go to the charity that so many seem to hold so dear. It exists because of failing governments who treat ex-service people with contempt and who don't help them enough afterwards. The trick is to con the population into funding it further.

Anger or ridicule shouldn't be aimed at those insightful enough to question or, heaven forbid, actually criticise poppies. It should be aimed at warmongers and war supporters and failing governments.

I always lose the paper one about 10mins after I buy it so now get the metal (charity) ones. They have a date on them so I buy a new one each year and keep the old ones. I always give £20 as I know they cost more to make than the paper ones. Each to their own but I prefer the metal ones.

On the contrary, leaving aside the significance of the Poppy and the marvellous fundraising they achieve. I am a dealer in both antique fine jewellery & costume jewellery and the Royal British Legion poppies are extremely well made, very good design and look exquisite, its a great shame they cant be worn all year round as they are stunning against a black item of clothing. I cant fathom how you would not classify any brooch as not being jewellery. Do you feel the same about garter brooches? masonic jewellery? high school rings? club tie pins? how absurd.

I fail to understand why people are justifying their reasons for wearing the brooch poppy to the person who criticised the use of it.
I personally think that people are entitled to remember our heroes in whichever way they want to, whether they wear a poppy or not, or decide to wear a poppy brooch. No justification is needed.
Now can we please go back to what's really important today and remember those who fought for the country we have today.

Nonsense, most people use these every year, and as someone that actually collects for the poppy appeal every year it's the people that wear these that more often drop large bills and don't even need a poppy which is great as it means less faffing getting more.

I have bought poppies this year, but I do have empathy for an anti war stance. ww1 & ww2 had clear good guys and bad guys. when you get to Iraq and Tony Blair then you have to wonder if soldiers are being used to further the western purpose. whilst, as many, do not like the idea of nuclear weapons in the wrong hands you have to wonder if Trump is the right hands....
the poppy is for all those who have served this country and that does include soldiers who lost their lives in all conflict.
To all those who have died serving their country, rest in peace and I hope your sacrifice leads to a more peaceful, happy and content world.

Observing the 2 minute silence is a great way of showing respect and remembering but buying a poppy is actually donating to The Royal British Legion who, in their words, "provides lifelong support for the Armed Forces community - serving men and women, veterans, and their families."

FFS! I cannot believe some of these negative comments on a day like today! Can we not all come together and support those who have given there lives for us. Yes it is a little bit more expensive but some people like to be extra generous and if you think they are showing off about it, wow! grow up and get a life!

Excellent post, pity there's so many 'keyboard warriors' on here.
Maybe if they'd be real warriors in the 'real' world, they might appreciate what the BL do.
Anyway, bought one, thanks.
