There's A Remembrance Day Art Trail In Canary Wharf
Sculptures of soldiers stand in tribute in Jubilee Park.

Artist Mark Humphrey has installed reflective artworks around Canary Wharf to mark Remembrance Day.

Boots on the Ground recognises the efforts of manufacturing companies in supporting the armed forces.

The art trail pays tribute to the armed forces through seven pieces. Scattered across the Canary Wharf estate, they have been assembled by members of the Royal Engineers.

A poppy made from a re-purposed plane motor stands outside Canary Wharf station.

There's a handy map to help navigate along the trail — but be quick: the works will only be on show for another week, coming down after Remembrance Sunday.

These helmets, in Adams Plaza, symbolize lost soldiers.

The works commemorate different aspects of the armed forces from fallen soldiers through to the manufacturing companies that produce military equipment.

A veteran stands next to one of the artworks.

It's a sombre tribute which must be very moving to see in person.

The Remembrance Art Trail is on throughout the Canary Wharf estate, closing at 6pm on 13 November. It's free to visit at any hour till then.
