Remembrance - 11am, 11th of November 2014 - The Great War started 100 years ago this year

poppies for 888,246 dead


3rd November 2014 - a grey London Monday morning.
Each ceramic poppy below commemorates a life lost in The Great War by a British or Colonial Soldier...
not the wounded, nor the 'shell-shocked',
nor the German dead, nor the French, Itatian, Russian, Turkish, Serb, Austrian….

We all find very large numbers hard to visualise -
but not today at the Tower of London.


Traitor's Gate engulfed


Spare a quid or two for an old soldier?



The White Tower 1070

Tower Bridge's cast iron balustrade in white, blue and now RED
the 'Walkie-Talkie' afar off

Tower Bridge approach

in Flanders' fields….
