The Poppy Umbrella was created by our family in 1998. It features a unique red poppy design on the cover and was inspired by the Flanders poppies growing on the battlefields of the First World War in Belgium and France. Twenty of our family members served in the military in WW1. Five of them never came home. In their memory we have spent over 35 years studying, visiting and guiding on the 1914-1918 battlefields of the Western Front.

“Remembering”, All Year Round

We created this special umbrella in 1998 as a striking design to remind us all of the importance of Remembrance, any day of the week, all year round. It can be used throughout the seasons - providing shelter from the rain and shade from the sun.

The Poppy Umbrella has proved to be an imaginative and popular gift item, directly helping to generate significant proceeds for the good work carried out by military-related welfare, educational and WW1 heritage organizations dedicated to preserving the memory of those who have served their country in times of war. Almost all of our Poppy Umbrellas are sold by a variety of such organizations in their gift shops. As a family with over 32 years in the regular British Army and a further 12 serving with the Army in a civilian role, we are proud that The Poppy Umbrella has played a part in generating funds for these types of non-commercial organizations.
