In the United Kingdom, it’s called Remembrance Day (sometimes Poppy Day, as a reference to the war poem “In Flanders Fields”). In the United States, we call it Veterans Day. But regardless of what you call it, the intent is the same: to remember the sacrifices of those who served in the armed forces protecting our countries. The reason both nations celebrate the holiday on November 11th is to commemorate the end of World War I on that date in 1918.\n \nOur Limited Edition Commemorative Double Cloth Throw, woven from 100% Merino wool, is a unique way to remember and honor those who served. One side is the traditional khaki green of the British Army, similar to the original fabrics woven for the British Army in the same Abraham Moon \u0026amp; Sons mill from 1914. The other side is the official tartan of King George V (Royal Stewart).\nFor every commemorative throw sold, Abraham Moon \u0026amp; Sons, Ltd. will make a donation to the Royal British Legion, the UK’s leading Service charity providing care and support to serving members of the Armed Forces, veterans of all ages, and their families. \nThis beautiful, cozy throw would be a lovely addition to your home to remember ancestors who have served, or as a gift for someone in the military. We at Bronte Moon hope that you have a lovely Veterans Day, and that you take time to remember all those who have sacrificed for our freedoms.
