Default Poppies

I would like to have a tray of Remembrance Day poppies for sale on my bar. Does anyone know where I can get some from?

(Jimena de la Frontera/Estepona/Sotogrande area.)

lunacrout is an unknown quantity at this point

Maybe contact your local branch of the Royal British Legion?

We have 3 branches in this area so I would imagine that they're fairly widespread throughout Spain..

I've got my poppies and they're going well.

They have caused some interest amongst my Spanish customers. The men like to wear them in their buttonholes but the girls tend to put them in their hair.

On a connected theme, it's always a moving occasion to watch the Remembrance Day parade with Elgar in the background. It has been sullied a bit in recent years by the gutter press looking for protocol mistakes by the politicians. I hope this year they can just let the ceremony play out - it's not a time for political point scoring.

Perhaps you should of started your own thread then and not mentioned it on here as it`s hardly relevent with this one.

I would have thought Remembrance and the purchase of poppies are totally relevant to each other. I appreciate I may be mistaken.

Nimrod - that's the name, thanks. Great piece of music, always brings tears to my eyes. I'll go now, don't want to upset anyone else.

I can't listen to Nimrod, especially today on remembrance Sunday without filling up.
