The brother of a soldier killed in a suicide attack in Afghanistan is following in his footsteps. Chris Kirkness is passing out from military college at Harrogate - watched by his proud mum Maggie. It comes three years after the death of Chris's older brother, David.
Joining the Army was a life-long ambition for both brothers - David is pictured here in camouflage gear as a young boy with baby brother Chris.
Maggie Kirkness, seen here with Chris at the opening of a housing development in Morley in memory of David says she has no wish to prevent her younger son also following his heart.
