    Most ARRSE regulars will be aware that we run an annual charity auction to raise funds for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal. Over the years this has gone from strength to strength and last year we managed to raise over £5000 pounds which is an incredible testimony to the generosity of you, our members. I'm sure everyone is aware of the excellent work that they do but, if not, then please have a look at the Royal British Legion website.

    This auction is for a print of the very famous Will Longstaff painting "Menin Gate at Midnight." Full details can be found here although if you've never seen this picture then I can testify that it is very, very evocative.

    Kindly donated by JoseyWales.

    "Right chaps, I hereby declare this auction closed and very many thanks to everyone who contributed. However the winner is King_of_the_Burpas with his bid of £150.

    Can I ask you to pay via our Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal Donations Page on bmycharity. This will ensure that the money goes to the right place and also allows the tax to be reclaimed. Once you've paid, drop us a line using this link (please) letting us know you've paid. I'll then post back in this thread letting JoseyWales know that he can send the item to you and you can PM him with your address."
