Poppy Crosses

NFFWRA assists the named representative with the administration of the FEPOW plot at the Field of Remembrance at Westminster. This is in order to enable poppy crosses to be planted in memory of the Far East Prisoners of War.

Representatives from the London FEPOW Remembrance Social Club currently plant the poppies.

The opening ceremony takes places on the Thursday prior to Remembrance Sunday and is usually attended by a senior member of the Royal Household, who then conducts a review of the plots.
