Thousands turn out for Le Quesnoy ceremony
The ceremony was accompanied by a specially commissioned sound installation featuring choral music, as well as words from war poet Mary Borden's Sonnets To A Soldier. The ceremony was "amazing", according to Dick Harrold, governor of the Tower of London.
The success of the display of poppies at the tower meant Historic Royal Palaces, who maintain the landmark, were keen to mark the centenary of Armistice. Spectators gathered on vantage points around the tower to witness the spectacle and a minute's silence was also observed.
The ceremony, named Beyond The Deepening Shadow, will be repeated each night until the final showing on Remembrance Sunday. New Zealand Herald. Subscribe to Premium.
