Roger – The Bomber Command Bear
Our Great British Bomber Command teddy bears are each dressed at the Poppy factory right here in the UK by wounded ex-military personnel. We employ the Poppy Factory to dress our Armed Forces range of bears so that we can get wounded, sick and injured ex-armed forces men and women back to work. Having valiantly served their country, we think they deserve it.
We were invited to make Roger the official Bomber Command Teddy Bear by the RAF in 2012 to raise funds for the memorial in Londons’ Green Park. We have been privileged to hear first hand from the Veterans of Bomber Command and have been inspired us to do all we can to help preserve and honour their memory by passing their story onto the next generation. It is our hope that in 30 years time the teddy bears that we have delivered to their grandchildren will be passed onto their children along with these stories. If you have a story you would like to share with Roger please contact him on Facebook.
Like many bears at British Teddies the Roger bear received quite a lot of attention and he also has quite a few stories to share with everybody on our “in the life of British Teddies” teddy bear section of the website. The Roger bear is quite a famous teddy bear in these parts and would make a great gift for a family member or friend.
Only from the Poppy Factory; each Poppy Factory bear will arrive in their very own kit bag so little Pilots can pack him safely when they travel overnight.
