This pin is special for another important reason too as they also contain earth from Essex Farm, Ypres, where, on 3rd May 1915, Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae of the Canadian Army Medical Corps wrote the poem ‘In Flanders Fields’, which was the inspiration for the iconic red poppy becoming a symbol of Remembrance. The earth is collected and ground down to a fine powder and sieved, before being mixed with red enamel and painted into the poppy shaped recesses in the backs of every pin, so each has two levels of profound First World War history in its making - the metal and the earth.
This is your chance to own an original piece of First World War history. The Flanders Field Grasp Lapel Pin incorporates copper from authentic artillery shells, and some earth from the Essex Farm fields in Ypres, where, on 3rd May 1915, Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae of the Canadian Army Medical Corps wrote the poem ‘In Flanders Fields’.
Each pin comes with a commemorative certificate, dedicated to a brave soldier who served and sacrificed during the First World War. Presented in a keepsake box, with a certificate of authentication.
Minor surface imperfections and flaws may exist in the Grasp pin due to the use of century old ex-battlefield metals and the handmade process for creating them, but such only adds to the item’s character, individuality, and charm.
