Virtual poppy website for Anzac Day

4:57 am on 19 April 2009

The Returned and Services Association has introduced a virtual poppy website for Anzac Day.

The internet-based service went online at the end of last week.

Visitors can leave messages and plant poppies in a virtual field.

RSA president Robin Klitscher says the popularity of the online poppy site reflects the younger generation's interest in Anzac Day.

Anzac Day is next Saturday, 25 April.
