October’s Competition Winners Announced
Published on: 7 November 2019
With Remembrance Day, just a few weeks away, we ran a competition throughout October that focussed upon the poppy and asked why it was adopted as the symbol of Remembrance.
Each entrant that correctly answered the question was placed into a prize draw, to win a selection of beautiful poppy themed gifts from the Museum’s online shop consisting of:
1 x Pave Crystal Spitfire Wreath Brooch worth £15.00
1 x Pave Crystal Poppy Drop Earrings worth £15.00
1 x Remembrance Poppy Mug worth £8.00
1 x RAF Museum Poppy Tote Bag worth £3.50
1 x Poppy Scarf (Black / Red) worth £15.00
To be in with a chance of winning one of two good bags containing these items all that entrants had to do was answer the question below. Everyone who answered correctly by midnight on 31 October was placed in a prize draw, with our two lucky winners receiving their prizes in time for Remembrance Sunday.
The question that we asked was:
What was the name of the poem by Canadian Doctor John McCrae that inpsired the adoption of the poppy as the symbol of Remembrance?
The correct answer was: In Flanders Fields.
Our two lucky winners whose names were selected, are:
– Mr. Steve Maunder from Feltham in Middlesex
– Mrs Denise Baker from Scarborough in Yorkshire
We would like to offer our congratulations to them both on their win.
If you didn’t win this time, don’t worry, we will be running another competition soon, giving you the opportunity to win a basket of our Christmas goodies. In the meantime, if you would still like one of the items above, they are still available for purchase in our online shop.
