A display of thousands of ceramic poppies from last year's Tower of London exhibit has officially opened in Liverpool.
The Weeping Window section was draped down St George's Hall ahead of Remembrance Sunday.
Thousands of visitors are expected to see the display, which ends in January.
Army reservist Sgt John Ryan said: "Every time I see one of the poppies, it just reminds me of one of my friends who are with us no more."
Created by artists Paul Cummins and Tom Piper, the Tower of London artwork marked 100 years since the start of World War One and drew more than five million visitors last year.
It was named Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red after a line written by a Derbyshire soldier who died in Belgium.
Each of the 888,246 poppies in the original display represented one of the deaths in the British and Colonial forces between 1914 and 1918.
