Hi,

I ordered two (order confirmed) and I am expecting them in January/February 2014.

I had an e-mail on the 12th December saying that 250,000 had been delivered so far - going on my order number of 600,000 plus, I've got some time to wait.

I'm planning to visit the field in France where my great-uncle was killed on the centenary of 17th July 1917 - ironically the very day the Royal Family changed their name from Saxe-Coburg-Gotha to Windsor, although I've heard they still used their German name on their birth certificates etc. Both my grandfathers died during WW1 although they weren't in the forces.

All in a good cause.

Had mine about three weeks ago, one of the lucky ones I suppose.

Ian,
Like you I have ordered two with order no's 400,000 thereabouts,
and a recent email saying delivery Jan-Feb 2015 too.

it certainly would living in our area........even though it's a nice area too.....................remember a guy down the road had some stone balls on the top of his gate posts.........and had only had them a couple of weeks when one was nicked.................so he went out and bought another to replace THE MISSING one..............cemented it on to find some wag had come back with the original ball one late night and cemented that to the middle of his drive................not me yer honour, lol

Mook, your poppy, did it come with the usual black centre and a wire stalk?
Thanks
