Family activity at the Royal Engineers Museum: Remembrance since the First World War

29th October - 1st November

Close up image of poppies against a green backdrop. Written over the poppy image, in red and in large font are the dates of the activity and Family Activity: Remembrance since the First World War.

In 1914, the fields of Northern France and Flanders were ripped open as the First World War raged through Europe’s heartland. Once the conflict was over the poppy was one of the only plants to grow on the otherwise bare battlefields. The red poppy is the most famous symbol used to commemorate those who sacrificed their lives but there are other coloured poppies too, which all have different meanings.

Learn what the colours mean and represent while create your own poppy wreath made out of different materials.
