Flowers and a wreath of poppies have been left outside a Royal British Legion club in Sandwell in honour of a lorry driver who died when he ploughed into the side of the building.
The man, who has not yet been named, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Despite the crash devastating the club building, members left tributes honouring the man.
The message left with the wreath of poppies, traditionally used by the Legion to honour the war dead, reads: "Thoughts for a life lost and a grieving family. From Wednesbury Royal British Legion."
The lorry was travelling along High Bullen when it left the road and ploughed into the side of the clubhouse.
There were around 15 people inside at the time, but nobody else was hurt.
