Purple Poppy: Commemorating the Animal Victims of Warpurple poppy

To commemorate all the animal victims, Animal Aid has issued a purple poppy, which can be worn alongside the traditional red one, as a reminder that both humans and animals have been – and continue to be – victims of war.

During human conflicts, animals have been used as messengers, for detection, scouting and rescue, as beasts if burden and on the frontline. They have been used for companionship in the trenches and continue to be subjected to horrific warfare experiments in laboratories. Please wear a purple poppy and help us to raise awareness of these forgotten victims
