Today at the Tower of London…”Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red“. The moat is filled with ceramic poppies, to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the Great War (the First World War), with each poppy representing the fatality of each British and Commonwealth soldier in that war.
Coinciding with the school holidays and the unexpectedly glorious weather today, throngs of people visited this commemoration. Busy it certainly was, and most were impressed with this sea of red.
Impressive, yes, but a time of reflection and remembrance was given.
