Remembrance Day

Today is Remembrance Day in the UK.
There is a fantastic display of poppies in Liverpool to commemorate today.

They have taken up the theme of the poppies which we had at the Tower of London last year. Beautiful.

They are poppies from the Tower of London, the Wave and The Weeping Window are doing a tour before being permanently housed at the Imperial War Museums in London and Manchester after 2018.

Re: Remembrance Day

Thank you. I thought the tour had concluded. Nevertheless a beautiful and timely display.
I will never forget my visit to the Tower of London. A very moving display.

Re: Remembrance Day

I watched the remembrance service on TV last night. Very touching.  It seems very critical to complain about one of the contributors, but Pixie Lott fell somewhat short in the vocal range (being polite here).  Huh
Our local council have changed a lot of the tired, tatty public benches for some new ones which are 'remembrance' benches. Touching and practical and enduring. I have no photo and can find none online, so will take one and post it later.

Re: Remembrance Day

The BBC had excellent coverage from the Cenotaph yesterday. As usual it was a well organised ceremony. I assume it is the MOD that puts it all together.
