Globally, over one million knitted poppies have been kindly donated to the 5000 poppies project. Each of them with their own story, and all hand made with love. The Shrine is fortunate and proud to be able to have a collection of these poppies available for online purchase. What began as a small personal tribute by Lynn Berry and Margaret Knight to honour their fathers who both fought in World War II, has become an international tribute of respect and remembrance to those who have served in all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations, their families and their communities.
