A Sidmouth woman has paid tribute to a fallen relative by carving this remembrance scene into a pumpkin.
Julie Clayden said she was not aware until recently that her great-great uncle, RG Free, died in World War One at the age of 23.
She spent 40 minutes creating the wartime scene featuring two soldiers in memory of him.
RG Free was a private in the Royal West Kents Regiment and was sent to France on September 16, 1916.
He was wounded in action on October 3, 1916, but Julie said she is unsure when he died.

She said: “I only recently found out that my great-great uncle was killed in World War One and this was my tribute to him. He is named on the Thiepval memorial in France, but I need to do a bit more research to find out more.”
