The Millenium Eye is seen here at dawn with its lights altered to red to mimic the poppies of Flanders fields, the symbol of Remembrance day.

Remembrance Day
At the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month the United Kingdom remembers the dead of two world wars with two minutes silence.A service is held at The Cenotaph in Whitehall and smaller services take place at smaller memorials throughout the country.

"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them."
