'Blood Swept Lands' - The Tower of London Remembers

  1. 1. Entitled ‘Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red’, an installation is being build in the Tower’s famous dry moat in London, creating a powerful visual commemoration.
  2. 2. It will continue to grow throughout the summer until the moat is filled with 888,246 ceramic poppies, each poppy representing a British or Colonial military fatality during the war.
  3. 3. The poppies will encircle the Tower, creating not only a spectacular display, but also an inspiring setting for learning activities, as well as providing a location for personal reflection.
  4. 4. The last poppy will symbolically be planted on 11 November 2014.
  5. 5. Each ceramic poppy will be available to buy for £25 from 5 August 2014. 10% from each poppy, will be shared equally amongst six service charities.
