Where can you buy a poppy for RD in Christchurch? Looking but with no luck.

I make an online donation to RBL. However, I'm happy to buy a poppy for ANZAC day in April. They seem coy about selling ANZAC poppies though.

There's been a bit of argy bargy about that as normally the RSA people make and sell the poppies. However, it was decided to source that out to China I think.

Yeah, I thought that was a crappy thing to do but if they can get more money selling them because they are made more cheaply in China then I can at least understand the reasoning behind it.

However, I can understand why it's contravercial.

Found them !

A good pal of mine sent me out a few RBL poppies from the UK last year so I could share with expat pals here. I have a couple left over. I will send you one if you let me have an address.

Proper jobby with the leaf.
