Hammer fans will be able to show their support for both their favourite football club and the armed forces by sporting a special edition poppy pin.

West Ham Football Club teamed up with The Royal British Legion to create the £2.99 pin that features the club’s emblem alongside a traditional red poppy.

The red poppy is a symbol of Remembrance Day which takes place on November 12 and will pay tribute to the brave men and women who have lost their lives or have been injured during wars.

All profits will go directly The Royal British Legion which provides care and support to all members of the British Armed Forces, past and present, and their families.

To buy a pin visit poppyshop.org.uk.
