Remembrance Day - Lady Haig's Poppy Factory
Only the poppy above the door sets the red standstone building apart from others in the area. This is Lady Haig's Poppy Factory, in the Warriston area of Edinburgh. The original factory began in 1926 at the suggestion of Countess Haig, wife of Field Marshall Haig who was commander in chief of the British forces in Europe in the First World War. Today over 30 mainly disabled ex-servicemen work making poppies and poppy wreaths for Scotland.
