Tower of London Poppy

Blood Swept Lands & Seas of Red

Displayed amidst the silverware in the Trophy Room is a Poppy from the Tower of London Display that progressively filled the Tower’s Moat between 5 August and 11 November 2014 – with a final total of 888,246.

There was one poppy for each British fatalityin the First World War.  Each ceramic Poppy is unique – no two being the same.

The six service charity partners for the project at The Tower were The Confereration of Service Charities, Combat Stress, Coming Home, Help for Heroes, The Royal British Legion and The Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen & Families Association.

The General Committee has approved the donation of this simple but unique and powerfully evocative symbol as an opportunity to record the names from within the membership who gave their lives in service of their country in both World Wars.
