Some 118 members of the British Armed Forces are included in the latest Operational Honours list.
A soldier is hoping to become the first double amputee to walk to the South Pole in a team made up of wounded servicemen and women.
He may be the heir in line to the throne, but Prince Harry was not exempt from making the tea in Afghanistan.
Pleased our Armed Forces will still be wearing their uniform in public. We should all be proud of our troops and not hide them away.From @Nigel_Farage on Twitter:
A No 10 source tells me that the Prime Minister understands the military decision yesterday to order the banning of wearing uniforms off base in London in the immediate aftermath of the murder.
But I understand David Cameron thinks the best way to defeat terror to "act normally", so the temporary order has been lifted.
All London personnel have been told not to wear their uniforms off base. But the threat level at military bases has not been increased.
Military personnel have been ordered not to wear their uniforms in public "in London and Greater London" following the Woolwich murder.
This email was sent to Air Cadets:
No uniforms are to be worn by any military personnel whilst walking out of unit/MoD locations in London and Greater London with effect now until further notice.
This includes the carriage of military day sacks.
Captain Richard Sawyer said the soldier was "undoubtedly one of life's true characters".
Never one to hide from the limelight, he was always ready to treat those around him, be it a Private soldier or the Officer Commanding, to one of his impressions or jokes - which invariably resulted in hilarity for all those present. Jamie Webb was constant morale.
Having deployed to Afghanistan previously, he was a committed soldier but it was his unique and loveable personality that makes him unforgettable. It was clear to all how much he enjoyed working with his mates in the Army and how much he loved his family. He will be sorely missed.
Paying tribute to the soldier, Commanding Officer Lieutenant Colonel Phil Kimber described him as "a real character, a totally professional soldier and a great friend to many".
Lance Corporal Webb was exactly the type of man you wanted around. Always with a smile on his face, always willing to engage in some witty and mischievous banter, he really did lift the morale of all around him.
He was also an outstanding professional; bright, engaging and hugely talented.
He had an obvious gift for intelligence work, which ensured he was at the heart of all that his company did on this tour.
A British soldier from 1st Battalion The Mercian Regiment who died in Afghanistan yesterday has been named by the Ministry of Defence as Lance Corporal Jamie Webb.
He was 24.
Task Force Helmand spokesman Major Matt Allen said: "His death comes as a great loss to all serving in Task Force Helmand.
"Our thoughts and prayers are extended to his family and friends at this difficult time."
A soldier serving in the Nad-e Ali district of Helmand Province has died of his injuries after he was injured as a result of enemy action on 25th March. The soldier was flown to hospital for treatment where he succumbed to his wounds.
