Bloody Tears

In the run-up to the "Remembrance Day " in Seaham, England, the historic statue of soldier "Tommy " has been decorated with poppies.

On the "Remembrance Day " the soldiers who died in the service of the British Army in the First World War are commemorated.

In Britain, the day is also known as Poppy Day, as poppies are widely worn there as a symbol of the blood spilled in the war.
