As a family we have relations who fought in Great War. We visited the Tower of London many times to see the assembly of the poppy exhibition and eventually it’s disassembly. It was a moving and poignant art installation that truly echoed the meaning of armistice.
Our poppies (an aunt bought one for our daughter) are currently in safe storage until I create a suitable display for them. Probably a suitable piece of timber that echoes trench duck boards.
