The story behind the PoppyPoppy Appeal 2015

Your Royal British Legion poppy helps us to provide thousands of modern veterans, Service men, women and their families with vital advice and support. Don't just wear a poppy for the memory of the fallen, wear it for the future of the living.

Behind the scenes

Our 2015 Poppy Appeal campaign launched with a stunning advertising and poster campaign across the country.

Our posters, billboards and print ads were designed to show that when you wear a poppy you're not just remembering those who've lost lives in conflict, you're also helping the Legion to provide assistance to today's Armed Forces community.

The striking photos contrasted original First World War photos with those of contemporary veterans and serving personnel taken in the same photographic studio using the same camera.

Find out more about how these beautiful photos were created in our behind the scenes story.

For Armistice Day we invited everyone to join us on social media to observe a two minute silence online by taking a photo with a poppy held to your lips.

These were shared across your social media using #TwoMinuteSilence on Facebook @OfficialPoppyLegion, on Twitter @PoppyLegion and on Instagram @RoyalBritishLegion to let friends and family know that you were observing the Two Minute Silence on Armistice Day.

Famous faces also joined the nation to show that they would be taking part in the Two Minute Silence.
