A stonemason in Staffordshire has begun the sombre task of engraving the names of all the UK servicemen and women killed in 2010 on to a memorial.
Nick Hindle will spend a month etching the names of all the military personnel who were killed on duty or through terrorism last year on to a wall at the National Memorial Arboretum in Alrewas, Staffordshire.
The engraver said he considered it a "huge privilege" to carve each of the 112 names.
He said: "They are not just names on a wall, they are families and friends and colleagues who have lost a loved one.
"So it's just not adding letters and names, I definitely think of these people and families.
"You are obviously concentrating very hard on what you are doing but there's a lot more behind it than just that.
"There is a lot of pressure, but it is a huge privilege to be asked to do the addition of the names."
The Portland Stone wall forms part of the Armed Forces Memorial, the UK's tribute to the 16,000 men and women who have been killed on duty or as a result of terrorist action since 1948.
The 112 deaths in 2010 represent one of the largest tolls of the last 20 years and the names of those killed will also be read out and dedicated in a special service for families later in the year.
The National Memorial Arboretum, part of the Royal British Legion, is the UK's year-round centre for remembrance.
