An artistic sculpture has been put in place so museum visitors can dedicate and insert a poppy in honour of those killed in the First World War.

The poppy-shaped sculpture at the Royal Armouries’s Hall of Steel, in Clarence Dock, invites members of the public to add their own poppies so that it can become a focal point of the museum’s remembrance service on Monday.

Organised by The Royal British Legion and designer Mark Humphrey, the venture is intended to raise money for charity, with a share of donations going to the Never Such Innocence charity which will mark the centenary of the First World War next year.
