What is thought to be the oldest surviving poppy from the battlefields of the First World War will go up for auction next month.
The poppy was taken from the trenches of Arras in Northern France in May 1916 by a 17-year-old British soldier called Private Cecil Roughton.
The keepsake is expected to fetch at least £1,000 when it is sold at Duke's Auctions in Dorchester on 6 December.
It is being sold by Sue Best, whose mother received the memento from Private Roughton when she was 13 years old after asking the young soldier for his autograph.

Lieutenant Commander Billy Adams saw his 10-year-old daughter Megan, a singer in the Poppy Girls group, for the first time in five months after she had performed at the Royal Albert Hall on Saturday night.

The pair's on-stage hug reduced many audience members to tears, among them Samantha Cameron and the Countess of Wessex.
Megan, who believed her dad was thousands of miles away, told the newspaper: "I cried when I saw him because I miss him so much. I am proud of what he does - stopping the pirates - but it is hard not getting to see him."
