An inquest will be held today into the death of Captain Stephen Healey of 1st Battalion, the Royal Welsh.
He died in Afghanistan when his vehicle was blown up by a bomb in May 2012.
Cardiff-born Capt Healey served a number of tours as a soldier, and in 2009 was mentioned in dispatches for his actions during a deployment to Afghanistan.
His family described him as "all you could wish for in a son, brother, uncle and friend".
