Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

Please, under FOI explain why some of the BBC tax payer funded presenters wear their Poppies on their right side, rather than their left? Please explain if those who wear their poppies on the right side are doing so as an act of defiance or whether this is due to a lack of guidance of rememberance on behalf of this tax payer funded institution?

Yours faithfully,

Petra moore

This page ( on the web site of the Royal British Legion advises that here is no right or wrong way to wear a poppy. It is a matter of personal choice whether an individual chooses to wear a poppy and also how they choose to wear it.
