About Us

Welcome to Parade Pins Ltd, formerly Poppy Pins Ltd.

Due to recent changes enforced upon us by the Royal British Legion we are now unable to supply you with the trademarked 2 petal poppy, or call ourselves Poppy Pins Ltd.
We have designed and copyrighted our own unique 3 petal poppy and, sadly, had to change our eye catching name.
That aside we are still producing to the same high standard of quality in our new range of badges.

May I take the time to introduce myself, my company Parade Pins Ltd and our range of Regimental Poppy Badges.

My name is Simon Tattersall. I served for 14 years with The Royal Artillery, serving in Germany Northern Ireland, & at the ACIO in Bristol. Parade Pins Ltd is a UK (Bristol) based Company. All of our poppy badges are manufactured In The UK, unlike some competitors which are Made In China.
We all know “Lest We Forget” and “We Will Remember Them”.
We all stand at Cenotaphs and Memorials around the country on 11th November.
I wanted a way to remember and celebrate Regimental comrades, and that was my reasoning behind setting up Poppy Pins Ltd, now Parade Pins Ltd, and it’s range of Regimental badges. This has since blossomed to encompass Civil & Reserve Forces, together with Uniformed Youth Organisations.
We have found our Badges were worn, not only by Serving Members, but also by family, friends and widows/widowers of fallen comrades.
Contribution statement on Poppy Badges only:

We pledge to donate 20% from our net year end profits and distribute them equally to the following military charities;
