Sandown, Isle of Wight, England, UK

Along Sandown's seaside, a Celtic cross commemorates lives lost in war.  At its base, blood-red poppies symbolize the ultimate sacrifice. Today, the cross bears these words: "Remember the love of them who came not home from the wars 1914-18 -- 1939-45." Names follow. The Isle of Wight weeps. [2011]
