Captain Rupert Bowers, who was killed during an explosion in Afghanistan, has been described as a true warrior.
Those who knew him say they're devastated by the loss and today his former teachers held a special assembly to remember him.
The body of a soldier from the Midlands who was killed in Afghanistan last week, has been repatriated to RAF Brize Norton.
Captain Bowers, from Wolverhampton, was in The Mercian Regiment. He was leading a patrol when an improvised explosive device exploded.
