The body of Corporal Jake Hartley, 20, of 3rd Battalion The Yorkshire Regiment has left RAF Brize Norton. Lieutenant Colonel Zac Stenning, Commanding Officer of his battalion, said:
"Corporal Jake Hartley was the ultimate infantry soldier and naturally stood out from his peers. Fit, motivated, yet always understated, he was one of the best ... He was a natural leader as exemplified by his top position on the gruelling Infantry Section Commanders Battle Course."
