A MICRO artist from Bournemouth has created a poignant tribute for Remembrance Day.

David A Lindon has made a microscopic diorama inside the eye of a needle in remembrance of his Uncle Bill and all the fallen of past and present wars.

It features the painting of a lone soldier and a single red poppy.

Bournemouth Echo:

David said: “This poignant painting framed in gold is nestled on a bed of miniature realistic poppies.

“His Majesty's Royal Palace and Fortress of The Tower of London is set in the background, which incorporates the Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red 2014 poppy art installation.

"The poppies encircle the tower and fill the Tower's moat which marked Britain's involvement in WW1.”

David said his uncle Bill, Trooper William Lindon, served from June 17, 1940, in the Third Royal Tank Regiment.

He was killed in action on July 3, 1942, at the age of 21 and buried at El Alamein Egypt.

David said: “At this time of year we reflect on Bill's short but eventful life and take time to read his letters to his mother and brothers from the front.

"Bill died before I was born but luckily having inherited his mementos from my father helps me connect with this fallen hero.

"I am proud to be able to create this microscopic masterpiece for this national day of Remembrance.”
