[left plaque] The Rose And Poppy Gates / Harry Gray 2016 / The Rose And Poppy Gates are dedicated to the memory of all rugby players who have served and died in conflicts around the world. / On the gates, bronze roses - as worn by generations of English rugby internationals - gradually transform into poppies, symbolising the move from player to soldier. / There are 15 large roses on each gate, representing the rugby team. They are modelled on those worn by the Grand Slam-winning England team of 1914, who all volunteered to fight for their country. / The brass poppies at the top of the gates are formed from German shell-casings fired in action during the 1914-1918 war. / The gates were unveiled in April 2016, as part of the RFU's programme of events to commemorate the centenary of the First World War.
