Honour Who Fell – participatory public art

The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead commissioned Creative Junction to create a piece of public art to mark 100 years since the end of the Great War and remember those from the borough who sacrificed their lives.

Honour Who Fell commemorates the lost lives of people from this area and has been installed on Windsor Guildhall’s Corn Market ready for Armistice Day and throughout the rest of November.

Local residents have made over 2,500 individual poppies to create this artwork, inspired by original letters, diaries, photographs and their own hopes about peace now and for the next 100 years.

Each poppy represents someone from the Royal Borough who lost their life. 

This is part of a series of events and activities through Heritage Lottery Funded ‘For King and Country’, revealing the stories behind the names of the 200+ war memorials across the Borough – the title of this piece of public art takes its name from an inscription on one of these memorials and echoes the cascade of poppies that fill the Corn Market at Windsor Guildhall.
