What was in the Tower of London Moat during World War I? Well it wasn’t poppies as they have today, but it was vegetables. Ingenious if you ask me.
Brilliant. Thanks for sharing that. Did you also know that there were animals there too? In 1235, King Henry III received three lions (or leopards) from Emperor Frederick II.
Was there ever water in the moat? Not sure how I’d react to wild cats living in the moat though, I suppose no one would try and escape from the tower.
Claire, that is an interesting picture. Thank for sharing.
It’s amazing what people did during the war. They used every piece of land they could to carry on as normal. Dig for Victory, works every time.
