Keith, 71, sets up a display in the front garden of his Rainworth home to mark the occasion and to pay tribute to fallen heroes.

Although he tested positive for Covid in the build-up to Remembrance Sunday, he still managed to stage the display for a certain time.

Keith also helped to raise funds for the Royal British Legion, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year.

Here is our photo gallery of the display, which included military memorabilia, life-size models of soldiers in uniform, poppies, wreaths, Union Jack flags and sandbags to replicate the trenches of the First World War.
