I visited the Tower of London many times whilst the ceramic poppies were being installed. I was inside the Tower on 11 November 2014 when the last poppy was planted.

I received a poppy from my sister and it sits on my mantelpiece as a reminder particularly to those who gave their lives in the First World War but also to everyone who served. Blood Swept the Lands And Seas Of Red. We will remember them.
