Poppy pins is a company that produce a number of special poppies for Remembrance that have Regimental badges incorporated into the design, and are available for online purchase. Every poppy badge that is purchased from the site includes a 20% donation to the Royal British Legion Poppy appeal.
In recent years they have brought out a brand new HM Coastguard Poppy design and have asked us if we would share the details with you. The badges should be around £10.00 including postage and packing in the UK and are available directly from their web site.

We are delighted to bring you a continuing special offer on a new SAR book that has been published:
“A history of Royal Navy Search and Rescue from the First World War to the present day. Royal Navy Search and Rescue A Centenary Celebration”
Today, the sight of a helicopter speeding toward some destination is familiar enough, but take a moment to consider – is there a life at stake?
Is someone in peril and on a knife edge of survival?
Will the helicopter crew be selflessly placing themselves in the most dangerous
of situations for the sake of saving others?
Ever since the First World War, aircraft of the Royal Naval Air Service and later the Fleet Air Arm have operated from land bases and ships at sea, flying search and rescue missions. In this book David Morris, Curator of Aircraft at the National Museum of the Royal Navy, tells the incredible story of Royal Navy search and rescue from the first mission by Sir Richard Bell-Davies VC to the present day.
