Remembrance display
Each year, in addition to the Remembrance Services taking place around the Bradford district, the Lord Mayor’s office shows the depth of gratitude felt by the city by decorating the main display case in City Hall with poppies and a poppy wreath. The case at the top of the Civic Staircase is emptied, cleaned, decorated with poppies and filled with significant pieces connected to Remembrance in the city. The pieces on display include a ceramic poppy which was bought for the city by the Lord Mayor’s Office, from the poppy installation at the Tower of London marking 100 years since the start of World War One.

The poppy was one of 888,246 ceramic red poppies, each intended to represent one British or Colonial serviceman killed during World War 1, which formed the Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red art installation at the Tower of London last year.

A particularly poignant piece is a silver rose bowl, which was presented to the Lord Mayor and the citizens of Bradford on behalf of the Belgian Consul as a token of their gratitude for the hospitality extended to them during the First World War. Over 1,000 Belgian refugees were accommodated in Bradford during the First World War.

There is also a silver wine flagon presented to the city in 1976 by the West Riding Regiment RA, the 272 WRA Field Support Squadron RE, to mark the extension of Royal Artillery Freedom of the City to include the Royal Engineer Squadron and their successors.
