Each poppy represented a British military fatality during the war.
The poppies encircled this iconic landmark, creating not only a spectacular display visible from all around The Tower but also a location for personal reflection. The scale of the installation intended to reflect the magnitude of such an important centenary creating a powerful visual commemoration.
Roll of Honour Ceremony

Every day in the moat at sunset, the names of 180 Commonwealth troops killed during the war

were read out as part of a Roll of Honour, followed by the last post.
