To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the 1918 Armistice, TheWhiskyBarrel.com is proud to be supporting Poppyscotland by donating all of our gift wrapping proceeds for orders placed in the month of November to the charity.
Who are Poppyscotland?
Poppyscotland provides life-changing support to our Armed Forces community. They reach out to those who have served, those still serving, and their families at times of crisis and need by offering vital, practical advice, assistance and funding.
Poppyscotland was established in 1921 as ‘The Earl Haig Fund Scotland’. Since then, the name has changed to Poppyscotland and has merged The Royal British Legion (TRBL), which operates in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Consequently this is largest charity group supporting the Armed Forces Community across the whole of the UK.
The 1918 Armistice
The 1918 Armistice marked the end of fighting on land, sea and air in World War I between the Allies and Germany. Signed in Compiègne, France, the Armistice came into force at 11 am on the 11th of November 1918; “The eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month”. The 11th of November 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the 1918 Armistice.
Why TheWhiskyBarrel.com is supporting Poppyscotland
TheWhiskyBarrel.com is delighted to be able to provide support and raise awareness for this great cause throughout the month of November 2018 and coinciding with Remembrance Sunday on 11th November. We are all too aware of the significant contributions made by those serving and those who have served in the Armed Forces in the UK and abroad. And it is especially relevant as some of us have family and friends who have served in the Armed Forces. Therefore, The Whisky Barrel hopes to take this opportunity to thank the Armed Forces Community in this small way and we hope you will help us to do so too.
