EDEN Camp Modern History Theme Museum has just completed putting the finishing touches to a unique display in time for Remembrance Day.

The original idea to use their iconic Hawker Hurricane Gate Guardian as the back drop to the display was conceived by the museum's retail manager, Denise Millington.

The call for help to create the tribute went out to the nation, via social media, at the beginning of the year and supporters the length and breadth of the UK stepped forward with their knitting needles and started to produce wool poppies in the thousands.

The museum, which is based near Old Malton, was especially grateful to St Peter's Church, Norton and a number of knit and natter and WI groups in the Ryedale area.

Museum Manager Nick Hill said: “Whilst November is traditionally the time of year that the nation comes together to remember all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in defence of their country, we look upon our museum as being a year round memorial to all those who have served in HM Forces over the last 100 years. However, at this time of year we wanted to make an extra special effort to show that, in the words of Robert Laurence Binyon, 'At the going down of the sun, and in the morning, we will remember them'."
