Ribbons and badges
The following messages are available for affixing to any standard design wreath, printed in gold lettering on blue ribbons
- "Lest we Forget"

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 3,000 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In order to avoid charging VAT we do not quote a price for our wreaths.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.

Please be generous when making your donation.
With the help of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, and others, it is possible to arrange for Poppy Wreaths to be placed on graves in most countries overseas. Unfortunately badged wreaths are not available under this scheme.
Additional postage charges will apply for deliveries to addresses overseas and may differ from country to country.
Please make requests for laying wreaths at least eight weeks in advance. An annual replacement standing order service is also available.
