How to join our World War One photo gallery of appreciation

As we prepare to salute our heroic servicemen and women on Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day, there are plenty of you wearing your poppy emblems with pride.

And we want to showcase just how deep that pride runs.

Poppy appeal, traditional poppies

Poppy appeal, traditional poppies

So, to mark the occasion we are urging as many readers as possible to send in snaps of them wearing a poppy - be it red, white or purple.

This photo gallery of appreciation will carry extra poignancy this year with Armistice Day (November 11) falling on Remembrance Sunday and marking 100 years since the cessation of hostilities in World War One.

Readers can get involved by commenting on our Facebook post or sending in a picture of themselves wearing a poppy to copydesk.nmsy@jpress.co.uk.

Please include your name and where you are from.
