This is a special year as Britain marks the 90th anniversary of the Royal British Legion, and the Armistice Day commemorations will be on the 11th hour of 11 – 11 – 11.

In Ipswich there will be two special events in addition to the Armistice Day and Remembrance Day programme.


Robin Vickery, Chairman of the Ipswich & District Royal British Legion, said: "With the help of the Borough Council's parks staff, the Legion is organising a Remembrance Garden in Christchurch Park for two weeks from Saturday 29th October. Anyone can lay a Poppy Cross in remembrance and the crosses and directions to the garden can be obtained from either the Reg Driver Visitor Centre or Christchurch Mansion.


"Secondly, with the help of the Tower Ramparts Shopping Centre and the Borough Council, we are having a Poppy Shop for two weeks in Tower Ramparts commencing Saturday 29th October. People will be able to buy items produced by disabled ex-Service personnel working at the Poppy factory at Aylesford, Kent. The shop is being run by volunteers and all profits will go to the RBL Poppy Appeal."
