Is there or can there be created a poppy motif that can be used in profiles?

For those KIA or  who served in a theatre of war, can a poppy be linked to display in a prominent position on their profile.

If there is already the facility to do this - can it be made simple to just link a poppy to a profile?  Or can instructions on how to do this be added to the right hand link help?

Terry Wright made one that many of us have been using. (Terry's such a whiz kid!)  You can find it on any of the Vietnam POW profiles right below Military Service. It's easier if you just let me copy and paste it somewhere on a profile for you and then you can use it wherever you want. It won't copy-paste here; so I may have gotten something wrong below, but this is what it's like. It's lovely because it acts as a visual divider and draws your eye to that line.

I include the Canadian Flag gif on my veteran profiles.  You could link to the poppy on the Roll of Honor page just as well.  I did a sample up for you. https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Ward-21242

You can also set  this as the primary picture so it's in the thumbnail or set it as background.  The directions are here: https://www.wikitree.com/photo/gif/Terry_s_Photos-122

You could use this:

{{Roll of Honor

|category=Killed in Action, United States of America, United States Civil War

|image=Buck-4860.jpg

|country=United States of America

|description=Killed in Action

|war=United States Civil War}}

Buck-4860.jpg is a poppy motif.
That looks like the source image for the ones on the roll of honor page.  

The search engine in wkitree will turn up several more.

As mentioned, the Roll of Honor has a small poppy image the Veteren Recognition page (https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Template:Veteran_Recognition) has a larger poppy and some other insignias.

I've used this one several times, Sez: 

[[Image:Photos-320.jpg|40px|??]]

You can adjust the size of the poppy in the 40px.  Replace the double question marks with 'center' or 'left', etc.

Alternatively, use this one on Stickers:  Military_Badges_and_Insignia-1.jpg

Ken
