Service for planting of Ceramic Poppies at Stow Maries WWI Aerodrome – 19 April 2015

Ten ceramic poppies from the ‘Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red’ art installation were ‘planted’ during a service of remembrance at Stow Maries Aerodrome, in memory of the airmen of 37 (Home Defence) Squadron who died whilst serving the squadron during World War One. The art installation of 888,246 poppies surrounded the Tower of London during 2014 commemorating one hundred years since the start of WWI, after which they were posted out to individuals and groups. The poppies were purchased using donations by the ‘Friends of Stow Maries Aerodrome’.
