    Tucked away in one of London's most desirable postcodes, dozens of ex-service men and women work all year round producing millions of poppies for Remembrance Sunday.

    Despite the mammoth task there have been only a few changes since the first poppy factory was set up in 1922, with age-old techniques still used by the workers.

    Women and dependants of those who served in the forces have since been allowed to join the team, earning what is described as a highly competitive wage producing poppies all year round.
