The red poppy has been a symbol of remembrance for those who have given their lives in the line of duty.

The crew of HMS Lancaster have shown their respect by creating a poppy on board the ship.

The company have taken time out of their busy patrols in the Caribbean to remember those who have died.

HMS Lancaster's Commanding Officer, Commander Steve Moorhouse said, "It is a great honour and a privilege for me and my ship's company to make this small gesture to those who have served and been affected by war and conflict.

"I hope this will help symbolise the eternal respect and honour that we all have for those who have made the ultimate sacrifice."
