Remembrance at the Tower

So poignant. Nearly 900,000 ceramic poppies will be laid with the last one being put in place by the Queen on Armistice Day.

    Yes it was but at the same time so sad when you realize that every poppy represents a young life

  4. Wonderful photos, such a striking effect. I’ve bought one of the poppies, looking forward to having it in the garden once the ‘show’ is over.

  5. This is a fabulous idea. My great grandfather’s younger brother died 12 November 1914 and is remembered on the Menin Gate. We had an emotional visit there a few years ago – actually seeing something like this really brings home the vast numbers of lives lost ….

      Thank you – I am so sorry that you are unable to see the photos – try clicking on them – if they are too big click again and they will become an acceptable size – hope you can do this

  7. Oohh..lovely colors Diana! Stunning view!

  8. So impressive! Armistice Day is not a public holiday in Finland, though the ending of WW1 is important for as well: we got our independence from Russia as a consequence of the war.
