An art installation paying tribute to the First World War generation is currently on display in Belfast.

The message ‘thank you’ is spelled out in eight foot high letters in the grounds of City Hall.

It’s part of a project by the Royal British Legion to mark the centenary of the end of World War I.

The idea was to say thank you to those who lost their lives, as well as those who played their part on the home front and made sacrifices during the war.

The back and sides of the installation are blank, allowing the public to write their own messages.

The installation was first unveiled in London earlier this month and is now touring several UK cities.
