This dramatic image created a strong reaction when we first published it.

So often Remembrance imagery is centred around 'Flanders field' and the relationship to those who lost their lives at sea is lost. We thought that we would remedy that with this powerful sunset image of three Swordfish flying over an expanse of poppies on the 'wind harrowed meadows of the sea'.

The notecard includes the following poem.

Remember the Poppies of the Sea

No grave to mark the man. No cross, alone or serried ranked. No poignant blooms to salute the loss or the love or the tragedy of fading memories.

On steel steed and white horsed plain they did their duty. They fought and gave and gave their all and, when all was done, they took the sea's embrace.

Somewhere, a gypsy ripple monument roams tirelessly still. A metamorphic headstone. Improperly anonymous. Incongruously humble.

Named and nameless, warriors all. Now fathoms deep, at peace on pillows of softest sand, their drifting spirits but gentle shadows, dancing forever with sunbeams.

At the going down of the sun, and in the mourning, remember the poppies that grow on the wind harrowed meadows of the sea.
