Albion’s Remembrance plans for Saturday

24 October 2019

Albion will commemorate their annual Remembrance fixture with a minute’s silence before kick-off on Saturday (ko 3pm).

The Baggies will also wear poppy emblazoned shirts against Charlton for what is the Club’s only home fixture during the remembrance period.

The shirts will be auctioned off online following the fixture with all money raised aiding the Royal British Legion. Stay tuned to wba.co.uk for details of the auction.

Cadets from 481 (West Bromwich) Squadron will be in and around The Hawthorns with a bucket collection - where poppies will also be available - before providing a guard of honour as the teams enter the pitch.

Slaven Bilić’s men will also wear poppies in their games at Stoke City on Monday, November 4 (ko 8pm), and on remembrance weekend itself at Hull City on Saturday, November 9 (ko 3pm). Shirts from all three fixtures will be auctioned in aid of the RBL.

Last year’s shirt auction totalled £5,960 for the charity, with hundreds also raised in the pre-match bucket collection.   

The RBL’s work is encapsulated in its motto: Live On – to the memory of the fallen and the future of the living. 

The Legion is the nation's biggest Armed Forces charity providing care and support to all members of the British Armed Forces past and present and their families. 

It is the national custodian of Remembrance and safeguards the Military Covenant between the nation and its Armed Forces. It is well known for the annual Poppy Appeal, and its emblem the red poppy.
