Events are going to be held this month to mark the centenary of the death of a World War One chaplain, who died trying to save a wounded soldier.
Maurice Berkeley Peel was a vicar at the outbreak of war who volunteered his services as a chaplain and went to France in October 1914.
Wounded in 1915 at Festubert in France, he returned to England to become vicar of St Editha's Church in Tamworth.
In 1917 he resolved to return to the front line to serve as an army chaplain but was killed at the Battle of Bullecourt on 14 May 1917.
The Tamworth-based Peel Society says it's holding a commemorative service in the town on the 100th anniversary of his death and then a pilgrimage to his grave in Queant, France later this month.
