Poppy Code

Attending a funeral service yesterday, I encountered my old swimming pal Robert, and he gently reproached me for wearing my poppy prematurely, if that is the correct way of putting it.

I retorted by saying "not according to the BBC". I've noticed BBC presenters wearing them all week.

Robert would appear to be right, though. A member of Poppy Appeal staff was interviewed this morning and he said that, as far as the Legion was concerned, it's fine to wear a poppy now, though the Appeal doesn't officially begin till today.
