the tower of london remembers

Saturday, 1 November 2014



they shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old;
age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
at the going down of the sun and in the morning,
we will remember them.

well here we are, november again. in true british fashion, we all started sporting our poppies on our lapels late last week, and staring adoringly at the men and women in their fancy british legion uniforms who are now permenant fixtures inside all of our tube stations. it's that time of year, isn't it, the time when we remember.

the tower of london has been remembering since the early days of summer, in preparation for now. and, if you haven't been down to to check out the poppy installation titled "Blood Swept Land and Seas of Red", then you're definitely missing out. i wrote a little something something about the installation over on best LDN walks' blog; you can read all about it here.
