Have you ever worn a paper poppy on Remembrance Day? Or taken part in a 2 minute silence?

The Royal British Legion has remembered fallen war veterans in this way since 1921. In this collaborative exhibition to mark a century since its formation, Years 8 and 9 at Hinchley Wood Secondary School have produced an array of stunning creative pieces, all of which use original local artifacts in our collection to reflect on what remembrance means to them. Their work highlights the extremely unique and personal significance the Poppy holds for each individual, while also commemorating our shared past.

All of the brilliant pieces can be explored alongside original objects from a century of local RBL groups at Dittons Library and in the online exhibition.
