During 2013, we employed wounded ex-military personnel at the Poppy Factory to dress our Armed Services bears in the UK. We employed the Poppy Factory to dress our Armed Forces range of bears so that we we could help get wounded, sick and injured ex-armed forces men and women back to work. Having valiantly served their country, we thought they deserved it.

Our Great British Veteran bears are a favourite with the families of our servicemen. Many surviving Veterans are gifting these special teddy bears to their Children, Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren in an effort to pass on their brave stories to future generations. You can choose from one of four beret colours to create a personalised Teddy Bear to cuddle up to at home.

The Great British Veteran is wearing a smart white shirt and regimental tie beneath a fully lined navy blue blazer finished with two hand sewn working brass buttons. On his lapel he wears a Poppy in memory of his comrades. His miniature general service medal sits proudly on his chest. Our Veteran Teddy Bear is available wearing a Red, Navy Blue, Khaki or Green Beret each trimmed with an authentic leatherette band and displaying the Veterans Beret Badge. If you would like to share your Veterans story please contact us on Facebook.

Each Veteran teddy bear will arrive in their very own kit bag so little soldiers can pack him safely when they travel overnight.

    Hi, I am just placing an order for one of your veterans bears, and when looking at the colours for the berets, I was so please to see that you have the Essex Yeomanry under the green beret. I am a veteran and I served with the Essex Yeomanry, I served for 12 yrs and 189 days. My husband for whom this bear is for is an Ex RGJ with 15 yrs service. I am buying one of your bears to help support your appeal, plus I think that they are lovely looking bears.
