A Derby man has embarked on a mission to place a poppy on each of the city's war graves.
David Hughes, of Darley Abbey, said it as the only way to make people appreciate the sacrifices made.
Mr Hughes - whose nickname is Wheelchair Charlie - is also a disabled rights campaigner.
He said there were thousands war graves in the city but the problem would be finding them before Remembrance Sunday, on 12 November.
"Actually knowing where they are means basically going round a graveyard and trying to find them and identify them, because not all of them will stand out," he said.
"Some of them will be civilian graves which their own families put in before military graves were actually introduced."
