Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.
A striking height-adjustable derby featuring a vivid print of watercolour poppies. The poppy is one of Britain's best-loved wildflowers and is also a symbol of remembrance for soldiers who lost their lives in conflict. The poppy was adopted for this purpose after the First World War and the publication of John McCrae's 1915 poem 'In Flanders Fields', with its famous first line, "In Flanders fields the poppies blow". The naturalistic poppies are shown on a black background. This walking stick is height-adjustable from 73 to 95cm (approximately 29 to 37.5"), making it suitable for a wide variety of users. It is fitted with a chrome collar and a black, non-slip rubber ferrule. Ferrule diameter 16mm.
Measuring your Walking Stick:
Please note that this information is a guide only. Consult your doctor or physiotherapist if you require specific, medical advice on this matter.
- The walking stick user should stand upright, in the type of shoes they usually wear, with their arms hanging naturally by their sides.
- Another person should turn the walking stick upside down, so that the top of the handle is resting on the floor.
- Positioning the stick next to the user, make a small mark on the shaft of the stick level with the bump at the bottom of the wrist bone. Using a small saw, cut the stick at this point. This will mean that the user's arm will be slightly bent when they hold the stick.
