THE glorious sea of scarlet surrounding the Tower of London is now reaching its zenith.
After Armistice Day on November 11 the nearly 900,000 ceramic poppies planted in the Tower’s moat, each representing a British soldier killed in the First World War, will be removed and dispatched to those who have bought them for £25 each, raising £11million for armed service charities.
The artwork has attracted around four million visitors so far.
It’s a breathtaking sight which has moved many, including the Duchess of Cambridge, to tears.
I think most people who’ve seen it, whether in reality or on TV, would agree that it is the most moving Remembrance tribute we have witnessed.
