Think of peace in this troubled world
on 14th April 2018.
After visiting the “poppies” at the Tower of London in 2014 along with some 5 million people it was on the top of my local visit list when some of them went on tour around the UK which included Fort Nelson. Only 15 miles or so from home makes a simple trip this time.
The Great War 1914 -1918 was said to be the
war to end all wars.
old blog of Poppies at the Tower of London link,
There is a ramp up the banks of the fort so that visitors walk up to the poppy wave and you pass under a sea of red then go down the other side this feels much more personal than the larger poppy display that was at the Tower of London.
