Centenary Field of Thanks

On 11 November 1918, the guns fell silent across Europe as the Armistice was signed and the First World War was over. Over 1.1 million British and Commonwealth soldiers had made the ultimate sacrifice.

One hundred years later, we join together to say Thank You to those who fought in battle, worked in the factories, planted the crops, nursed the injured and cared for the children.

People from across the UK have been sending in their messages, which have been placed on weatherproof poppies. Over 20,000 poppies have been planted, and by the 11th November, all poppies submitted will be in place.

Unfortunately, it is too late to have your poppy to the field, but you can still visit the field at the National Memorial Arboretum, our nation's centre of Remembrance situated in Staffordshire on the edge of the National Forest, until the end of December 2018.
