The mother of a fallen soldier has joined a vigil to try to save the Chapel of Rest at RAF Lyneham in Wiltshire, where their loved ones were repatriated.
The chapel is set to be demolished and turned into a training centre and accommodation, with a new Garden of Remembrance at Lyneham. Dozens of bereaved families turned out for a vigil to protest the plans.
Among them was Lucy Aldridge, whose son William, 18, died in a blast in 2009 and was repatriated at the chapel. She said the building itself is tied in to their memories.
