Manufacturer Description

In order to continue commemorating the lives of our Service personnel that were lost during the historic Battle of the Somme we have created the hand crafted solid brass Somme 1916 Poppy Lapel Pin. Our first pin in this collection, the Somme 100 Poppy Lapel Pin, which has enabled us to commemorate British lives lost on the first day of the Battle of the Somme has now sold out. Each lapel pin has been made by hand in the jewellery quarters of London and Birmingham and is made from British shell fuses fired during the Battle of the Somme and collected from the historic front line. The stunning red enamel in the centre of each poppy is made from a small amount of finely ground earth that was collected from Gommecourt, Hebuterne, Serre, Beaumont Hamel, Thiepval, Ovillers, La Boisselle, Fricourt and Mametz, and red enamel mixed together to create the iconic red colour. Each piece offers a unique opportunity to own a piece of the Somme. Each pin is engraved on the reverse with SOMME 1916 and arrives in a lacquered wooden presentation box with an illustrated Certificate of Authenticity, together with a certificate commemorating the life of an individual soldier who fell during the Battle of the Somme from the 2nd to the 141st day.
Minor surface imperfections and flaws may exist in the Somme 1916 Poppies due to the use of century old ex-battlefield metal, but such only adds to the item's character, individuality and charm. Designed by TMB Art Metal. All proceeds support The Royal British Legion. Product Size: 1.6cm diameter .
