The story behind the PoppyPoppy Appeal 2015

To the memory of the Fallen and the Future of the Living

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


As Armistice Day approaches we're inviting everyone to join us on social media to observe a two minute silence online.

Take a photo of yourself with a poppy held to your lips. Share it across your social media using #TwoMinuteSilence on Facebook @OfficialPoppyLegion, on Twitter @PoppyLegion and on Instagram @RoyalBritishLegion and let your friends and family know that you'll be joining the nation in observing the Two Minute Silence on Armistice Day.

Famous faces are joining the nation to show that they'll be taking part in the Two Minute Silence. Will you join them?

Remembering the Fallen with a #TwoMinuteSilence

Behind the scenes

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

Our posters, billboards and print ads are 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 contrast 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.
