Nigel served in many conflicts and war zones. He went to Afghanistan knowing the risks and prepared his family well, but you never believe it would happen to your family.
The bodies of two soldiers from the North West killed along with four others in a bomb blast in Afghanistan will be brought home today. Private Daniel Wade from Warrington and Sergeant Nigel Coupe from St Annes died whilst on patrol earlier this month.
