AGF Fire will soon be in possesion of one of the ceramic poppies that made up the spectacular display 'Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red' at the Tower of London, marking one hundred years since the first full day of Britain's involvement in the First World War.

Created by artists Paul Cummins and Tom Piper, 888,246 ceramic poppies progressively filled the Tower's famous moat between 17 July and 11 November 2014. Each poppy represented a British military fatality during the war.

The poppies created a stunning visual display and also an opportunity for personal reflection and rememberance.

All of the poppies that made up the installation were sold, raising millions of pounds which were shared equally amongst six service charities.
