They Shall Grow Not Old

“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning

We will remember them.”

- For The Fallen; L. Binyon (1914)

With a Great Grandfather who fought in the First World War, a Grandfather who fought in the Second World War, an Uncle who was in the Armed Forces and a Brother who is in the Armed Forces, like millions of other families Remembrance Day plays a huge part in my family.

Constructed out of thirty-two genuine brand new LEGO pieces, I have designed and fabricated one hundred limited edition Poppy pin badges (in commemoration of the First World War Centenary) that will, like our memories, last longer than the standard paper versions. 

Each Poppy comes with a hand numbered signed presentation card and is ready to wear straight from the box. Dimensions: 89 x 79 x 33mm.

Built in memory of Thomas Henry Hodgson and all those who not only fought in the First World War, but every state of conflict ever since.

These limited edition Poppies sold out immediately with proceeds being divided between The Royal British Legion and Help For Heroes.
