Bleuet appeal from Australia

Origins of the Letter to the Fallen project explained

19 October 2016

The Connexion has put an Australian charity in touch with Bleuet de France because they want to add a blue cornflower to their collection of poppies and asked for help after reading an article about the French war victims’ charity on our website.

The Letter to the Fallen project was launched with a letter from former Australian prime minister Tony Abbott and invites young and old to write a letter to the unknown fallen Australian soldier whose grave is in Flanders Fields.

They have poppies from all over the world and an original signed Earl Haig programme from the first poppy day together with the poppy.

Bleuet de France says it is pleased to be involved.
