Unique memorial, ceramic poppies to mark end of devastating WWI

Ablain-Saint-Nazaire (France) (AFP) – President Francois Hollande opened a huge, elliptical memorial Tuesday carrying the names of nearly 600,000 fallen soldiers of all nationalities in an emotional ceremony in northern France marking the end of the devastating First World War. Several hundred kilometres away across the Channel in London, a teenage army cadet planted the last of 888,246 ceramic poppies at the Tower of London, representing every British military fatality in the 1914-18 war that saw more than 16 million troops and civilians killed.
