The Peace Pledge Union (PPU)has been distributing white poppies during the Remembrance period since the 1930s.
Less familiar than the red poppy, the white variety is a symbol of remembrance for ‘all victims of war’, says the PPU.
At Lochgilphead Co-op on Saturday November 4, PPU member Mary Stirling was assisted by Bob Dixon in promoting the poppy in return for donations.
Bob said: ‘We’ve been really surprised by the number of people who have never seen a white poppy before and stopped. We have had some really interesting chats.’
