Ideas for Remembrance Day from our iChild Shop

Posted by iChild, November 01, 2017 10:34 AM

On Remembrance Day (or Armistice Day), young and old honour those who made the ultimate sacrifice. Our iChild Shop is proud to offer a range of products from the Royal British Legion (who support veterans of the British Armed Forces, their families and dependents). We have also selected some children's wonderful books and memorabilia on the two World Wars.
