Ribbon of Poppies

Ribbon of Poppies UK & Commonwealth would like to invite all those that would like to remember the Fallen, and those that served at Sea, on Land or in the Air, to join in the Ribbon of Poppies living Memorial.

 

The initial idea was to create a carpet of crimson from Lands End to John O'Groats, in the UK, to remember all those that served. However due to the power of the internet and social media, we have received pledges from across the World.

 

We would ask those who have made the pledged to also consider sowing purple poppies to remember the animals of war either as a seperate ribbon or preferably blended in with the red ribbon as they served alongside each other.

 

So wherever you are, whoever you are, however old or young you are, you are most welcome to join the Ribbon, to remember those that served.
