The British Legion appeals for funds (called the Poppy Appeal) around Armistice Day (11 November) each year. People donate to the activities of the Legion and are given a paper/plastic poppy to wear.
The Legion says:
Our 2015 Poppy Appeal campaign has launched with a stunning advertising and poster campaign across the country. Our posters, billboards and print ads are designed to show that when you wear a poppy you're not just remembering those who've lost lives in conflict, you're also helping the Legion to provide assistance to today's Armed Forces community.
My question is not about giving money to the Legion.
I want to know what our Rabbis think about wearing the poppy in the button-hole.
Is it for example:
not a Jewish thing to advertise that you gave charity,
not a Jewish thing to wear a button-hole?
