The last surviving First World War widow is marking Armistice Day with a birthday meal as she turns 93.
Dorothy Ellis attended the service at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire today.
Her husband, Wilfred Ellis, was friends with author Michael Morpurgo and provided the inspiration needed for his children's novel, War Horse, with stories of life before and during the war.
He was shot, gassed and left for dead in the space of five hellish months in 1918.
