A marble poppy memorial, titled 'Forever', has been gifted to a Wiltshire town in honour of the role it played when fallen soldiers were repatriated to England.
Residents of Royal Wootton Bassett lined the streets when those serving their country in the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts made the ultimate sacrifice.
Artist Mark Humphrey created the "Every Man Remembered" memorial for the World War One centenary but wanted to create something as a reminder of the conflicts of his generation.
In 2011 military repatriations through Royal Wootton Bassett stopped. By then the bodies of 345 service personnel passed through the Wiltshire town.
In recognition of its role the town was given the title 'Royal' Wootton Bassett.
Ian Ferries, Mayor of Royal Wootton Bassett, says the marble poppy is a symbol of the town and people will be able to remember the important part it played during the repatriations.
An official unveiling of the memorial will take place next year.
