Poppies at the Tower

Poppies at the Tower

On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918, the guns across Europe fell silent. After more than four years of bitter fighting, the ‘Great War’ was finally over. The destruction wrought by the First World War transformed bare land into fields of poppies - a sea of red flowers springing up across the barren battlefields of Northern France and Flanders where nothing else would grow. Visitors to the Tower of London in 2014 will have seen the iconic ceramic poppy installation, "Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red" commemorating the 100th anniversary of the war. Our poppy collection includes our calendar featuring the installation and the 2016 Royal Mint commemorative coins.
