The Poppy: A Symbol of Remembrance
Opens 30 March at the National War Museum, Edinburgh, www.nms.ac.uk/national-warmuseum
From the battlefields of World War I to a symbol worn in remembrance, the poppy has had a lasting impact. Though this exhibition highlights the charitable aspect, it doesn’t shy away from the debates that have raged over the poppy’s politicisation. Still, what more fitting way for National Museums Scotland to conclude its centenary events than with the symbol worn every year to ensure that we never forget?
The remembrance poppy was inspired by the poem In Flanders Fields
