Remembrance with Arthur Price and the Royal British Legion Women's Section

Remembrance Sunday is an important day in our year. Red Rose Daddy is an Explorer Scout leader so the Sunday nearest to the 11th of November finds him on parade with his scouts and us in the crowd at our local war memorial joining with our local community to remember the fallen. I've written about my experiences before in this post - Remembrance - and it's one that I am most proud of.

When we were offered the opportunity to review a couple of items from Arthur Price's range of Remembrance items, sold in aid of the Royal British Legion Women's Section, I was keen to do so. The range, called 'Remember' is the first non-tableware range from Arthur Price since 2010 and offers a selection of items, each printed with a specially designed poppy print. Arthur Price have teamed up with Laurence Llewellyn-Bowen to create the range and it includes a tablet cover, tote bag, umbrella, mug and notebook.

I was sent the mug and umbrella and I've been very pleased with both items. They both feature the all over poppy print which I really like. It reminds me of the Arts and Crafts movement, and designers like William Morris and the amazing wallpapers they created. The design is carried around the mug and on to the handle with an accent of poppies inside the mug, as well as the word 'Remember'. I'm fairly fussy about mugs and I like one. It's a nice shape and feels good in my hand. It's especially good for a cup of herbal tea as the bright white inside makes the colour stand out well.

The umbrella is a ladies umbrella. It's a good size which easily covers me and Bud when we are out for a walk. The canopy measures 24" which is perfect for us. I was really impressed by the automatic mechanism for opening the umbrella. A square silver button sits on the handle and with one press, opens up the umbrella. No shaking or flicking to ensure it is properly opened, it just pops up. Great for when you are caught in a sudden shower. The umbrella features the same vibrant poppy print as the mug, with accents from the Arthur Price logo and that of the Royal British Legion Women's Section.

A proportion of the sales of all of the items will go towards the Royal British Legion Women's Section. This is a membership organisation for women which serves the serving, and ex-serving military community. Formed in 1921 the organisation continues to support thousands of men, women and children in the Armed Forces community through scholarships, annuities, family welfare breaks and direct grants. You can find out more information on their About Us page.
