Sometimes it appears the world needs reminding of the terrible costs of war.

The 1914 - 1918 war led to 888,246 British men and women losing their lives, and the Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red installation (above) is an incredibly moving way to commemorate them, a hundred years later.

Waves of red appear to wash against the old walls of the Tower of London, filing the moat with ceramic poppies.

Good post JP, it's important to keep those memories alive and vivid for the next generation so we really do "Never forget"

Thanks. I was most moved by the sight of all those poppies and thinking that each one represented someone who was killed who was just like us.
