Hundreds of people lined the streets to pay their last respects to an inspirational Army sergeant who was known to his men as "Dad".
The funeral of Gareth Thursby in the market town of Skipton in North Yorkshire was delayed until today so his comrades could return from Afghanistan to be there.
Sgt Thursby died just days before his 30th birthday. He and Private Tom Wroe were killed by a rogue Afghan policeman in a so-called "green on blue" attack.
