Private Thomas Wroe is being buried with full military honours in his home village of Meltham, near Huddersfield. Hundreds of people lined the streets to pay their respects as the cortege passed by. The service is being held at St Bartholomew's Church and will be followed by a private burial.
Private Wroe was just 18 when he was shot dead by a rogue Afghan policeman in the Nahr-e-Saraj district of Helmand Province on September 15th along with Sgt Gareth Thursby from Skipton.
