Poppy Frames UK – 11th Nov – Remembrance Day

Mr Ray Collister MBE of Liaisons Gallery in Tamworth have developed an unique Remembrance Day offering, to run alongside the companies continual support of Military Charities and ex-servicemen, past and present. Ray himself being a disabled war veteran with twenty-five years’ service before leaving the colours.

As we know 11th November is Remembrance Day a Memorial Day observed in Commonwealth of Nations member states since the end of the First World War to remember the members of their armed forces who have died in the line of duty.

The memorial evolved out of Armistice Day which continues to be marked on the same day every year and was first observed at Buckingham Palace, commencing with King George V hosting a “Banquet in Honour of the President of the French Republic during the evening hours of 10 November 1919. The first official Armistice Day was subsequently held on the grounds of Buckingham Palace the following morning.

The Red Remembrance Poppy has become a familiar emblem of Remembrance Day due to the poem “In Flanders Fields” written by Canadian physician Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae. At first real poppies were worn. These poppies bloomed across some of the worst battlefields of Flanders in World War I; their brilliant red colour became a symbol for the blood spilled in the war and the black centre is for the grief over their deaths.

So with this in mind and to remind us of the sacrifice made by all the Armed Services, in past and present conflicts, Liaisons Gallery have developed an unique ceramic commemorative remembrance day poppy, displayed within a high quality 3D frame, also each poppy is individualised with any particular regimental badge positioned at the centre of the poppy.

Along with purchasing this unique Remembrance Day for £150.00 each and with every poppy purchased, a £25 charity donation will be made to the regimental charity based on the regimental badge selected.
