Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red

Remembrance Sunday

Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red is an Art Installation at the Tower of London, marking one hundred years since the first day of Britain was involvement in the First World War. Created by the artist Paul Cummins and designer Tom Piper, 888,246 ceramic poppies filled the Tower's famous moat over the summer. Each poppy represents a British military fatality during the war.

Each day in the moat at sunset, names of 180 Commonwealth troops killed during the war were read out as part of a Roll of Honour, followed by the Last Post.

The scale of the installation intends to reflect the magnitude of such an important centenary creating a powerful visual commemoration.
