How you can help cover Puffing Billy in poppies on Remembrance Day!

On the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day, the Emerald RSL wants to re-enact the return of the 100 people from Emerald from World War One.

And they need your help!

The plan is to re-enact the return on Puffing Billy, with descendants of those who served and school kids to be on the carriages.

They want to decorate the whole engine and two carriages in poppies so it can toot into town at 10:30 on Sunday, November 11.

The RSL has managed to get 7,500 poppies already. But it still needs a few thousand more!
