Remembrance at the Tower Oct4 by dianaed14 So poignant. Nearly 900,000 ceramic poppies will be laid with the last one being put in place by the Queen on Armistice Day. Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading... Related
Amazing and moving!
Thank you Cindy – I had no idea that the ground would be so covered. Many people wee just standing there and absorbing the sight.
What an incredible sight!
Yes – glad the young men are not forgotten –
Yes it was but at the same time so sad when you realize that every poppy represents a young life
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.
Thank you – I felt that I should buy one. I saw them all in boxes as well and a Group of people in red tee shirts went to ‘plant’ some more
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 ….
It is so so sad that many young men died – people at the tower were very respectful
Si je puis me permettre Diane, pour moi qui suis myope, je regrette vraiment la taille de tes photos que je ne peux pas vraiment apprécier. belle journée
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
Oohh..lovely colors Diana! Stunning view!
Thank you – also so poignant
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.
Well that is something to celebrate as well!
So true! That we celebrate on 6th of December.
