We are proud to launch this year’s keepsake lapel pin for VE Day as it fits so perfectly with the concept of ‘leaving, missing and finally returning' to their loved ones, as many veterans did 75 years ago and continue to do today, piecing back their lives on returning home.
This subtle yet special commemorative Men’s Lapel Pin has been specially commissioned as part of our ‘Returning Home’ series. At the end of WW2 3.8 million British men and 400,000 women were reunited with their homes and families - some for the first time in many years.
Our designers have focused on our simple, yet iconic poppy head and used different textures to portray unique elements of a veteran’s life. Both soldier and civilian are united as one, two sides of the coin, one side smooth and polished, the other hammered to reflect the sacrifices made and the challenged endured, both in service and in life.
This exquisitely textured piece evokes both the person they were before leaving and the person returning, united as one, before and after, then and now.
The challenges faced by reunited families after the war were similar to those faced by service families today. Then as now, The Royal British Legion is here to support them and the sale of each Official Royal British Legion Stories of Home pin supports our invaluable work.
Each pin comes with one of five stories, we cannot produce bespoke certificates for this item.
