100% OF THEIR PROFITS GO TO THE ROYAL BRITISH LEGION TO SUPPORT BRITISH ARMED FORCES AND THEIR FAMILIES

The Crystal Buckley Brooch range gets the Royal Seal of Approval.

We're running a special offer on our Crystal Buckley Brooch to mark the birth of the royal baby. Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge helped highlight The Royal British Legion’s range of poppy jewellery earlier this year when she wore a Large Crystal Buckley Poppy Brooch, a bigger version of this stunning Crystal Buckley Brooch in support of the Legion’s vital work for all members of the British Armed Forces past and present, and their families.

The Crystal Buckley Brooch is inlaid with red and black crystals, and is part of a beautiful range of jewellery that can be worn all year around to show support for the Legion and the families it cares for.

Don't want to get drawn in to whether this is a good cause or not, I'm sure that they help very deserving and needy people who were probably misguided but I don't think this constitutes a deal. The cheaper you buy the poppy for the less goes to the charity...

Its about supporting those who have lost their lives fighting for our country and their families.. nothing to do with Tony Blair.

I will be wearing my poppy with pride.. because I am proud of our soldiers & what they do & have done.

I don't need a badge to boast to the world I support charity thanks.

Not that I will be forgetting remembrance day, but for a number of reasons I'll vote cold, not least of which, is the £1 + P+P title. Minimum spend, from what I can see is £4.95 (£1 + £3.95 P+P). Quite a difference from £1 for starters, and then there's the whole, where's the deal argument? I shan't go on, lest I be accused of anything that I am most certainly not. Suffice to say, I'll happily take a poppy for ONLY £1, when any number of sellers chap my door, or are standing outside on a cold, dark night with an 'official' collection tin.

I give up I really do. I said £1 + p&p.

Why not buy a poppy from a shop for say £3? The charity would end up with more and it would cost people less.

Non deal which is being used to gain cheap heat.

I'm NOT blind! I said, there is a big difference between £4.95 (which it is including p&p), and the perception of £1 + p&p, which there is! For crying out loud, the flamin' p&p is 4 times as much as the poppy.

You boast about supporting charity?

Cold, go to a shop and pop a fiver into a collecting tin and more money then goes to the Charity

Has anyone looked at the link before commenting? These are not just paper poppies but some really lovely things! So yes buy a paper poppy from a seller but if you want to show your support in other ways the take a look?

Miss MellyG

because I am proud of our soldiers & what they do & have done.



This is so right and yet so wrong at the same time. Not everything is black and white. Oh that it were.
On one side the heroics of war and on the flip side the atrocities.... True of all armies I'm sure regardless of nationality.

Would prefer all my money to go to the appeal rather than waste most on postage. On that basis it is not a deal for me.

Have to kind of agree with this.

Heat from me Miss MellyG for the obvious reasons

[/quote]He's from Northern Ireland-says it all ![/quote] Eh, do you know how many Northern Ireland people have lost their lives for the crown, you ****?

Can not find the poppy for £1

Sancho is right. Anyone who is paying £5 for a poppy online is a mug. More fool them.

On a seperate note, really supporting our troops would be demanding that they are brought home now, rather than fighting in a pointless war.

This is not hotukcharities.com.

This post is just heat hunting. Great cause but not a deal. Cold.

Have you looked at the link?

How does it cost nearly £4 to send a poppy? What are they sending it in?

Forget about the cause but how the **** does this constitute a deal? Cheap heat indeed. I can get a poppy for 10p. Shall I post a link for it.?

Prefer to put £5 in a poppy box than give £3.95 of it to Royal Mail.

Voting cold from me.

omg I cant believe this. Look yes people you are right. If you want a £1 poppy then paying £3.95 is excessive. HOWEVER.. if you are buying a brooch for you, a hoodie for your man, a t shirt for someone else, then £3.95 is an ok postage charge.

If you only want to donate £1 then by all means stick it in your local poppy tin & save yourself £3.95.

Again, buy a paper poppy from a shop, the charity will get much more money (presumably the 'posh' ones on the link cost more to produce)

Cold as far too expensive postage & packaging!!

love the poppy cufflinks ordered!!

Again like most others that are voting cold have you looked at the link?

I would love to know where you can get me a crystal poppy broach for 10p because your right that would be a bargain..but as I am pretty sure that this is the only place you can buy them and they have sold out quickly in previous years this is HOT

pay £4 for postage.. id rather stuck a £5 in.

Irrelevant though because it also costs much more to buy....

You're proud of torture independent.co.uk/new…tml and the slaughter of more than a million people, most of whom were innocent women & children? I sympathise with soldiers, ordered to do a terrible and dangerous job, it's the government and the companies making billions off war and suffering I blame. But to be proud of such actions just doesn't seem right.

Personally don't see how this is a deal

I've looked at the website. It would appear that it's pretty difficult to get a crystal poppy broach for 10p from there, what with them being £15 or £25.

Still cold.

So it's the only place you can buy it, and it's on sale for the rrp with an expensive postage option.

Remind me what the deal is again...

Heat hunting so voted cold.

The only product for £1 is the "Poppy Lapel Pin Dated 2012", so if you bought that it'd look like you were just using something you'd bought the year before

Excuse me, I am from Northern Ireland and what you have said really, really offends me. Don't paste everyone with the same brush. I come from a military family and my grandfather died aged 28 fighting in the war. 200,000 of people from here irrespective of religion fought in the war and almost 30,000 died. Please think before you post, people are allowed to have their own personal views irrespective of where they live

I don't see the deal, but thanks for the reminder. The paper poppies fall off in hours, so the little pins are great, the p&p is very steep, but I will still put change in the collector tins whenever I see them because it's a great cause.

I am not going to comment any more on here after. I am not bothered either way if this thread gets heat or not. But if someone clicks through the link & spends money on the Poppy Shop website & CHOOSES to pay for postage as well as donating to a very good cause, well then I am happy.

You lot certainly know how to get pulses racing & make someone feel guilty!

Oh and for what it is worth, I tried to change the deal to the crystal poppy but someone felt the need to amend it back.
