The last Royal Marines from Somerset-based 40 Commando are returning home from Afghanistan to Norton Manor camp in Taunton, marking the end of a decade of operations in the country.
22-year-old John Thornton was just a few weeks away from the end of his tour with 40 Commando five years ago when he was killed.
His diaries have just been published - alongside those of his older brother - who is still in the armed forces.
