Between July and November of 2014, on the hundred-year anniversary of the beginning of World War I, 888,246 ceramic red poppies were installed in the moat of the Tower of London. The poppies were part of the art installation Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red. Each poppy is intended to represent one British or Colonial serviceman killed in the War. The War to End All Wars did not end all wars. Sadly it is estimated that 16 million people died as a result of the conflict.
