Poppies at The Tower

The field is growing and will do until 888,246 poppies are planted.

It’s easy to forget what every single one represents.

Let’s just think about 888,246 individuals killed during the First World War. Just in the British armed forces. Unbelievable.


Two of these will be on their way to me when the installation is taken down in November, one each for a great-grandfather and a great-uncle.
