Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red

1

Last week I visited the Tower of London to see ‘Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red’. This poignant installation was created by ceramic artist Paul Cummins and marks one hundred years since the first full day of Britain’s involvement in the First World War. 888,246 ceramic poppies were used to fill the Tower’s moat – each poppy represents a British military fatality during the war. It is a powerful reminder of the incredible sacrifice so many made for our country. Part of the installation will continue to be on display at the Tower of London until the end of November. Wear your poppy with pride and remember the fallen.
