Mansfield man Lewis Kerry (78), of Pentland Court, has shared this photo of his late grandfather’s medals on the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War.

Frank Kerry, of Mansfield Woodhouse, went off to fight in 1915 as a volunteer and was awarded the Victory Medal, the British Medal and the Star Medal.

Mr Kerry survived the war and returned to open a shoe repair shop in Tuxford. He died in 1945.
