The Last Poppy

Here is the lad who planted the last of 888,246 ceramic poppies to complete the powerful art installation Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red. At 13, Harry Hayes is the youngest member of the Combined Cadet Force at Reading Blue Coat School in Berkshire. He is also older than some of the boys who volunteered to fight in the Great War and lied about their ages. Artist Paul Cummins, the creator of these ceramic poppies to commemorate the British and Commonwealth dead, handed the last poppy to Harry to plant (CLICK).
