As Remembrance Day draws near for commemorating those who died in battle during the First World War, one man is still desperately trying to ensure others receive a fitting memorial for their sacrifice.
Jim Lawrence, who collects for the British Limbless Ex-servicemen's Association, has been campaigning for more than three years to see the names of those who died in the Second World War engraved on Harrow's war memorial.
After successfully championing the need for the memorial outside the Civic Centre in 2005, Mr Lawrence, 79, is keen to see it altered to include Harrow's fallen soldiers of the second conflict.
This time last year he even offered to pay for the inscriptions himself - which would recognise 29 veterans from the Second World War and one from the Falklands War - on the Station Road monument.
But Harrow Council still refuses to budge on the issue, and has promised to produce a memorial book instead.
Councillor Chris Mote (Conservative) said: "I am looking at the feasibility of doing something [on the monument], but at the moment I am not convinced the few names Mr Lawrence has put forward is the correct number of people who have lost their lives.
"I told him three years ago about the soldier who lost his life during the Falklands War.
"I don't want to get it wrong in case anyone could be missed off the list, and the families would be upset.
"With a book of remembrance we could quite easily add names. I don't have the answers at the moment but I am looking into it."
Mr Lawrence, whose father was wounded in the battle of the Somme in 1916, circulated a petition for the names to be added shortly after the memorial was built, and gathered more than 6,000 signatures in favour of the plan.
He said: "We have produced one of the biggest petitions the council has ever received for this idea, and it seems unbelievably insensitive not to recognise these people who gave their lives for this country.
"Money seems to be the biggest issue here, but when we have had the families of the 30 people that we want to see on the memorial come forward and agree to split the cost, it doesn't look like they have any more excuses."
A sentiment shared by Labour group leader Bill Stephenson, who added: "This isn't a party political thing at all, we just think it makes total sense to properly remember those who died fighting for their country.
"It seems to me that there is no reason not to do it.
"We have memorials in Harrow with the names of those killed in the First World War, and this seems the only fitting way to appropriately remember those who died in later conflicts." * On Sunday there will be the traditional parade through Harrow town centre, leaving St Ann's Centre at 10am.
A United Act of Remembrance will then take place at the Civic Centre War Memorial at 10.45am. * Do you have a relative who should be on the memorial? Email firstname.lastname@example.org
