The funeral of Sergeant Gareth Thursby takes place in his home town of Skipton. He and a colleague were killed by a rogue Afghan policeman.
A full military funeral is to be held for a soldier from West Yorkshire who was killed in Afghanistan last month.
Friends and family have paid tribute to two soldiers killed in Afghanistan
More than 10,000 people are expected to pay tribute to Skipton soldier Gareth Thursby when his funeral is held in his home town.
A former pupil of South Craven School, Sgt Thursby, was serving with the 3rd Battalion, The Yorkshire Regiment, when he was shot dead by a man dressed as an Afghan policeman at a checkpoint in the south of Nahr-e Saraj district of Helmand province in September.
His family decided to delay his funeral until after the regiment had finished its tour of duty so his comrades could attend the service at Skipton's Holy Trinity Church.
