Produced for those people who want to wear a Remembrance Poppy as a mark of respect on special days, not necessarily the nationally marked days of Armistice and ANZAC.
The Lion & Tusk design is obviously aimed at the Rhodesian market. The Kiwi design is in response to the increasing number of New Zealanders who have become associated with our Association.
We have deliberately kept our designs completely different to anything on the market or currently used by veteran's welfare groups. Our statement on each label is as follows:
"The Rhodesian Services Association is a Registered Charity under the New Zealand Charities Act 2005. Registration number is CC25203.
This Remembrance Poppy is not designed to replace poppies sold for the welfare of veterans. This poppy can be worn on any occasion to commemorate those who are no longer with us.
Profits from this sale are directed towards the development of museum displays and preservation of historic items."
Each one comes with a small label card in which you can write an inscription if you are going to be giving it to someone.
Price - $10 plus postage. This item is also stocked in the UK
