I have just noticed the Poppy on the Genes Logo. Many thanks Genes Staff for showing the correct respect to our servicemen and women

I'd just noticed it and was going to comment too. Well done for once Genes.

Travelling in to London yesterday (to the theatre, 42nd Street seeing as you ask) on a crowded tube train, only one man wearing a poppy. And that wasn't me until I finally managed to find one in a shop.

Well done Genes. You got the Poppy up before anyone complained it was missing. :-D

well done!

It’s only the first week they’ve been on sale, Bob. Perhaps they’ll be worn worn after this weekend?

There is another aspect to consider- people donate & pin a poppy on their clothing. Then it either falls off, or is left at home.

Goodness well done GR. Brownie points all round for a change.
