EVERY single British and Commonwealth service personnel lost during the First World War is remembered in a giant Poppy of Honour unveiled last month in Cale Park, Wincanton.

A total of 1,115,471 individual poppies with rank, name and date of being reported missing or killed in action, as well as 800 women and 306 soldiers shot at dawn. A team of volunteers came forward to write the names.

The main poppy is made of steel and class and stands 2.6 metres high and features a wooden box containing artefacts and small vials of soil from the battlefields.

A total of 60 million soldiers were mobilised during the war, with eight million killed or missing in action, seven million permanently disabled and 15 million seriously wounded.

The Poppy of Honour has been on tour in Somerset, having already visited Frome, Midsomer Norton, Wells, Weston-super-Mare, Bridgwater and Burnham-on-Sea.

It is in Minehead today (November 8), followed by Simonsbath (November 9), Shepton Mallet (November 10), Wiveliscombe (November 11), Wellington (November 12), Bishops Lydeard (November 13), Taunton (November 14), Ilminster (November 15), Chard (November 16), Crewkerne (November 17), Langport (November 18), Yeovil (November 19) and Street (November 20).

It will then be taken to other parts of the UK, Ireland and Belgium.
