We visited the Tower of London yesterday and saw the completed Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red.

However you can still make a dedication in the Roll of Honour with respect to the name of a fallen soldier
You can view the dedications on the website.
Viewing the Poppies
We went very early yesterday and there were huge crowds at 10am in the morning!
I suspected the crowds would be very big later in the day - as indeed they were - people were standing 5-6 deep around the perimeter of the moat.

So if you still haven't seen it get along in the next week or so and you'll see as much as people did back in August!
and finally.... another video - this time by HM Forces News.
1. The installation has been created by ceramic artist Paul Cummins. He's be assisted by stage designer Tom Piper.
