Debi Allbutt, widow of Corporal Stephen Allbutt who was killed in a "friendly fire" incident in Iraq, burst into tears when she heard about today's ruling.
She was watching the news on a big screen at Swan Bank Methodist Mission in Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent, with local Labour MP Joan Walley.
Ms Walley, also fighting back tears, stood up and said: "I just want to stand up and congratulate Debi for everything that you've done."
