Passchendaele 3rd Battle of Ypres Commemorative coin and Royal British Legion Passchendaele Poppy

Today I am now the very proud owner of the London Mint’s excellent commemorative coin for the 100 year anniversary of the 3rd Battle of Ypres – Passchendaele.

The coin comes in an excellent commeroatvie presentation pack and is a real quality piece of memorabilia. See attached pictures.

I have also ordered the Royal British Legion commemorative Poppy which is made from actual bomb fuses taken from the battlefields at Ypres. Once this has arrived I will update my blog with some pictures of the poppy as well.

Watch the video. attached to get a real feel for the whole project. This clip will put everything into perspective.
