f_remembrance_poppy_fields.jpg

of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. . .

we remember.

The last poppy was planted outside the Tower of London this morning as Britain fell silent in tribute to the fallen.

Harry Hayes, a 13-year-old cadet, planted the final flower as thousands gathered quietly outside the castle to pay their respects.

Nearly a million of the ceramic flowers have been placed outside the Tower, each representing a life lost during the First World War.
