Sailors from the Royal Navy warship HMS Somerset have made a dramatic sign of their commitment to this year’s Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.
They dressed up in red to form the iconic symbol on the flight deck of the type 23 frigate.
The Poppy Appeal helps members of the armed forces past and present and the Captain of the Plymouth-based warship, Commander Tim Berry, who's from Somerset, was pleased to lend his support.
The Commando Helicopter Force from Yeovilton flew in the poppy to remind us of the appeal's relevance today, as well as being a powerful symbol of remembrance.
It was received by the Deputy Lieutenant of Devon and former First Sea Lord, Admiral Sir Mark Stanhope.
