Yeoman Serjeant Bob Loughlin admires a section of an installation entitled "Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red" by artist Paul Cummins, made up of 888,246 ceramic poppies in the moat of the Tower of London, to commemorate the First World War on Monday in London. Each ceramic poppy represents an allied victim of the First World War and the display is due to be completed by Armistice Day on Nov. 11, 2014. After Armistice Day, each poppy from the installation will be available to buy for 25 GBP (about $42).
