For me, Remembrance Sunday means taking a two minute silence at 11am in memory of those who have been affected in the conflict of war. The tribute started in 1919, a year on from the official end of the First World War on the eleventh hour on the eleventh day on the eleventh month in 1918 - Armistice Day.
Marking 100 years since the start of World War I there has been more coverage this year than in previous years with the poppy installation at the Tower of London.
Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red features 888,246 ceramic poppies planted in the moat at the Tower of London, each one representing a British military fatality during the war.
Not to detract from the typical annual donations to The Royal British Legion, I opted this year for something slightly different. A poppy with a twist. And what better twist than Lego!
The collection was designed and built in memory of Thomas Henry Hodgson, and “all those who not only fought in the First World War, but every state of conflict ever since”.
The poppy arrived carefully boxed and wrapped in a lovely brick graphic printed paper which, in true Lego fashion, shows the pieces that comprise it.
