Just had a text inviting me to order a poppy for my mobile - can anyone verify the legitimacy or is this a scam by another agency cashing in on the sentiments of this time of year?

Just got the same - I know that last year I made a donation via a link on here (or ARRSE) and that was legitamate RBL. Think they must keep you on record and it is the right day for the official start I think, standing by to be corrected.
Just done the same and donated for the "Poppy" wallpaper, but I'll also be doing the same with an old serviceman when I see them collecting.
The only charity I give to.

Yep, I think this is Kosher - too much of a coincidence otherwise - did you donate via mobile phone last year?

It is RBL if it states text "LEGION" to 85552

This is pukka.
text 'poppy' to 82225.
I think you may have to be WAP enabled as the piccy is a .jpeg, or else download it from your mobile phone providers website to your phone (if it supports .jpeg)


Link here, and scroll down for details.
