Legion Response (Sarcastic)


.Im so amused!!!! the legion responded to my blog regarding the lovely Poppy memorial at Stoney Plains. They have just sent me a listing of all the trashy items they emboss with the sacred Poppy and sell.. I should be flattered its the first response I have ever received from them.  eh????? I haven’t bothered listing all their items, just enough to give you an idea of the extent they have gone too. It is clear I have touched a nerve!!!

Respecting the Sacred Poppy

I commend the Stoney plains legion branch 265 for their total respect for the sacred Poppy. It’s just a pity the members at Dominion Command do not have the same level of respect. Their commercialization’s of the Poppy is outrageous. They market such things as bird feeders, legion lager, teddy bears, coffee mugs, Poppy earrings and so many more items. This is bad enough but no one is clear on where the money from these sales end up. Unlikely they go into the Poppy fund? Here are a few examples from Dominion Command. Please take note of the beautiful Poppy memorial placed in the local park.
