Eight ex-servicemen employed at Bakkavor Spalding and representing all three services, have planted poppies at The Tower of London in memory of those who lost their lives in The First World War.

The ex-servicemen volunteered to participate in a morning’s working party, planting ceramic poppies.

From July 18, Tower Moat has gradually been turned entirely red by 888,246 ceramic poppies.

Each signifies a life lost by a member of the British or Commonwealth Forces in the First World War.

The names of those who attended are Terry Moore, Andy Green, Kevin Prior, Allen Hyam, Alan Middleton, Paul Dixon, Ben Moore and Clive Metcalfe.
