London photos: personal tributes among the Tower poppies

I hadn’t been back to the Tower of London to see the WWI commemorative poppy installation “Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red” (by Paul Cummins) since I helped “plant” some ceramic flowers at the end of August. (See those photos here.) Today I returned to see the installation already being taken down, and discovered that visitors have been leaving their own tributes along the public path over the moat.

The tributes weren’t just for soldiers who died in the Great War but also for those killed in more recent conflicts, including Iraq and Afghanistan.
