ITV News has obtained CCTV images of Drummer Lee Rigby wearing a Help For Heroes sweatshirt two days before he was killed in an attack in Woolwich.
Surveillance cameras show the murdered soldier in a fast food takeaway shop near the Royal Artillery Barracks in Woolwich, where the 25-year-old soldier was based.
Timecodes on the footage show Drummer Rigby entering the shop at 9.23pm on Monday and leaving at 9.35pm.

Almost 100 senior British imams have signed a letter condemning the Woolwich attack and offering their condolences to the family of murdered soldier Lee Rigby. The letter said:
We share the absolute horror felt by the rest of British society at the sick and barbaric crime that was committed in the name of our religion.
We condemn this heinous atrocity in the strongest possible terms. It is a senseless act of pure depravity worthy of nothing but contempt. There can be no justification for murder.
The group also condemned the recent attacks against mosques and Muslim citizens:
Already we have seen extremists seeking to capitalise upon Wednesday's terrible act. There have been several attacks reported against mosques and Muslim citizens.
The hate-fuelled individuals behind such attacks wish to polarise and tear apart our great country for their own sick ends. They should be isolated and subject to the full force of the law.

Bill Oddie accused HSBC of funding the desecration of rainforests at the banking giant's annual general meeting.
HSBC's board members were confronted by the 71-year-old birdwatcher and broadcaster over its links to firms operating in Borneo.
Oddie, who used his position as a shareholder to raise the issue, said, "What's happening is that the logging companies have got the confidence and power and reputation because they have been funded by HSBC to expand and they are expanding across the world".
He added, "There's a huge desecration which at the root is funded by HSBC".
HSBC said it requires those banking with it to operate "legally and sustainably to protect the environment and local people" and has stopped providing services to 68 clients who failed to meet its standards.
Chief executive Stuart Gulliver urged Oddie to work with HSBC to tackle the issue, saying, "Give us the chance to be a force for good".
