WW1 Centenary wreaths
Special WW1 Centenary wreaths are now available in 2 sizes from our Poppy Shop - www.poppyshop.org.uk. A little remembrance cross with the 1914-1918 logo attached is also available. Note that these items are for sale at a fixed price but a further donation can be made during the purchase process.
Requests for wreaths
Please send requests (download and complete an application form) for wreaths other than Centenary wreaths to:
The Poppy Appeal
Royal British Legion Village
Kent ME20 7NX
Apply early for wreaths needed for Remembrancetide as pressure is considerable from October onwards. Applications received after the third week of October cannot be guaranteed for Remembrance Day.
Emergency and special requests can be accepted at all times by telephone on 01622 717172 or by fax on 0203 207 2172.
Please note that there may be additional costs for express deliveries.
Ribbons and badges
The following messages are available for affixing to any standard design wreath, printed in gold lettering on blue ribbon:
- "Lest we Forget"
- "In loving memory"
An additional donation is invited to cover the extra production costs and a guide is included on the application form.
Type C and Type K wreaths are suitable for inclusion of a central badge. There are over 3000 badges available including Services and associations. Please specify when ordering.
In order to avoid charging VAT we do not quote a price for our wreaths. Instead we make them available to you in return for your voluntary donation which we hope will at least cover our production and delivery costs. Indicative costs are shown above and quoted on the application form.*
Cheques and Postal Orders should be made payable to "The Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal" and crossed A/C Payee. Cash and treasury notes should not be sent through the post.
Goods are normally sent by post so ten working days should be allowed for delivery.
*Additional postage charges may apply for deliveries to addresses overseas.
Please be generous when making your donation.
