Designed as a tribute to Britain's World War I dead, a blood-red trench of ceramic poppies around the Tower of London has become a national phenomenon, as Britons flock to remember the fallen in generations of war.The poppy has been a symbol of remembrance for Britain's war dead since the flowers grew on the battlefields of northern Europe during the 1914-18 "war to end all wars," which killed 10 million troops.This year's Armistice Day carries particular resonance, as it comes 100 years on from the start of the Great War and shortly after the withdrawal of British combat troops from Afghanistan after 13 years.Millions of Britons wear a paper poppy pinned to the lapel of their coats every year to remember the war dead.
