What to wear: It's time to wear your poppy

With the poppy appeal upon us, now is an appropriate time to wear it with gratitude in memory of the glorious dead of the Great War as well as those who have worn the uniform in conflicts since the war to end all wars.

For those needing a poppy, the Royal British Legion has published a directory of American distributors. If you're near Canada, head across the border — just remember to grab your passport — and pick up one of the 18 million poppies distributed by the Royal Canadian Legion.

The Royal British Legion has also produced a short YouTube film (see below) with guidance on how to properly wear a poppy.
