A poster campaign featuring a West Midlands woman whose husband was killed in Cyprus is being used as part of this year's Poppy Appeal.
It is hoped the poster will raise awareness for the appeal
Tina Thompson's husband Mick died in an accident in 2005 on his way to work.
He had been in the army for 17 years but Mrs Thompson, 36, of Stourbridge, has so far been denied a full pension as he was not on duty when he died.
The Royal British Legion hopes the poster will highlight difficulties faced by forces families.
The poster features Mrs Thompson and the couple's two-year-old son Aidan, being swung on the beach by a figure made out of poppies.
Tours of duty
Mick Thompson was 38 when he died and had served as a chef in the Royal Logistic Corps.
He had been on several tours of duty including stints in Bosnia, Kosovo and Iraq.
Mrs Thompson said: "When I got back to England after the accident and filled in the paper work I was told because he was not on duty when he died I would only get a percentage of the pension."
She appealed the decision at Birmingham's Pensions and Tribunal Court which ruled that as Mr Thompson was travelling to work, it could be classed that he was on duty at the time of death.
However, the Ministry of Defence has not accepted the ruling and the matter goes to the High Court on 6 December.
The Royal British Legion has supported her through her appeals.
A spokesman for the MoD said: "It is not our policy to discuss individual cases.
"We can, however, confirm that deaths occurring during normal travel between home and work are, as is usual practice in comparable civilian schemes, not usually accepted as being linked to service.
"Exceptions can be made where there is specific evidence of a service link to the incident."
The RBL campaign also features a poster of former Royal Navy weapons electrical engineer Allen Parton who suffered a head injury during the Gulf War which left him in hospital for five years.
During that time, his family had to leave their married quarters home.
It is hoped the campaign will raise awareness and money in the run up to Remembrance Day on 11 November.
