Original Haig Fund Poppy
Original material and card Haig Fund poppy. The Haig Fund was set up in 1921 with the intent of aiding injured and ex-servicemen. Fund raising was acheived by sale of poppies manufactured in a factory at Richmond, and in a factory at Edinburgh by disabled ex-service men. This example dates from the Twenties and is in excellent condition. A good example of an emotive item.
