The Poppy Umbrella: A Gift to Remember
Searching for a special gift?
The family behind greatwar.co.uk also founded The Poppy Umbrella in 1998. This unique umbrella was inspired by the bright red Flanders poppy.
The idea at the heart of this unique umbrella relates to our 30 years of study of the 1914-1918 Western Front, and our aim to “Remember” all those whose lives were affected or cut short by the Great War. Twenty members of our family served in the British Army, the Royal Flying Corps and the Royal Air Force during the First World War. Five did not return home and are buried in France.
A Gift to Remember
Available in a range of popular styles this unique umbrella is truly a “Gift to Remember”. It can be used all year round throughout the seasons to give shelter from the rain and shade from the sun.
- Give The Poppy Umbrella as a birthday or Christmas present.
- Buy one for yourself to brighten up a rainy day!
- Don't let the rain spoil a wedding or a special outoor function... Poppy Umbrellas will protect your guests and add a vivid splash of colour to your special occasion.
- The Poppy Umbrella is an ideal gift for anyone who loves the red poppy.
