Lance Corporal James Brynin of the Intelligence Corps, who was shot dead on patrol in Afghanistan, is due to be repatriated today.
He will return via RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire and his funeral cortege will pass by a special memorial garden on the way to John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford.
The 22 year old, who worked as an intelligence analyst, had already been selected for promotion but was shot dead on October 15 when his patrol was attacked in the area of Kakaran, north east of Lashkar Gah.
Despite receiving immediate medical attention, L/Cpl Brynin, known as Jay, died from his injuries at the scene.
