Names of nearly 14,000 men from the city who lost their lives in the battle continue to be beamed on the ground of Exchange Flags this weekend, while St Johns Beacon will be illuminated with specially designed poppy lighting on 10-11 November and a portrait of World War One soldier Wilfred Owen will be projected near Lime Street Station.
