 This beautiful enamelled pewter Cornish poppy brooch, featuring the bezants from the Cornish coat of arms in the centre, has been created by St Justins skilled craftspeople to commemorate and honour all the brave Cornish men and women who lost their lives during the 2 World Wars and the conflicts since then.

£5.00 from the sale of each brooch is donated to The Royal British Legion Trading Limited, which gives its taxable profits to The Royal British Legion (Charity No. 219279).

 The coat of arms of the Duke of Cornwall is a Crusader shield on which are displayed fifteen golden bezants in the shape of a triangle with the motto One and All. The story of the bezants occurred during the Crusades when the Duke of Cornwall was captured by the Saracens. A ransom of fifteen bezants was demanded (bezants being gold coins named after Byzantium). The people of Cornwall raised the money for the ransom. It was paid and the Duke was set free. The inhabitants had all helped together, one and all, to raise the money; hence the Cornish motto.
