What was claimed

Jeremy Corbyn wore a poppy pin that said: “lets forget”.

Our verdict

This is incorrect. An image of Mr Corbyn at PMQs has been edited to include said poppy.

An image of Jeremy Corbyn apparently wearing a poppy pin with the words “lets forget” has been shared thousands of times on Facebook and Twitter

However, this is an edited image. The original image is from Prime Minister’s Questions on 16 March 2016—you can see in this footage that the clothing of those sat behind Mr Corbyn matches that from the image. Mr Corbyn was not wearing a poppy—it has been added to the image. We could not find any sort of “lets forget” pin available for sale.
