The parents of Private Thomas Wroe today paid tribute to their teenage son killed in Afghanistan on Saturday. Speaking from their family home Mr Wroe said:
"He was a proper little soldier. He wasn't interested in anything else - he just wanted to be in the Army. It's all he ever wanted to do."
"He was following in the family footsteps and fulfilling his life's dream. He was a hero - a well-loved hero. We're a military family .... so we all knew the risks. We just never thought this would happen to Tom, and nothing can prepare you for that news."
Two British soldiers who were shot dead on Saturday by a man in Afghan police uniform who was pretending to be injured have been named.
