The body of Private Daniel Wilford, 21, of 3rd Battalion The Yorkshire Regiment has left RAF Brize Norton. Lieutenant Colonel Zac Stenning, Commanding Officer of his battalion, said:
"Private Daniel Wilford was the archetypal Yorkshire infantry soldier; quiet, unassuming but with bags of character. He was unique, happy go lucky and confident, his smile could light up a room. A thoroughly honest and dedicated infantryman, his friends and colleagues trusted and respected him."
