poppy goes on the left
While buying a poppy today with my Aunt, a veteran was calling out a passerby because they were wearing their poppy on the right side of their jacket. This is incorrect. It should be close to your heart. The reply from the passerby was honest - their poppy falls off in the car (because of the shoulder seat belt).
As the veteran is putting on my poppy, I ask him about the seat belt dilemma. He pins it to my jacket's collar - on the left - and says, just wear the seat belt under the collar.
hmmm ... never thought of that before. ya learn something new everyday.
