Private Kyle Adams, 21 was killed with colleagues on 6th August, 2009 in Helmand Province when his Jackal armoured vehicle was hit by an explosion north of Lashkar Gah in Helmand Province.
He was working with Special Forces, carrying out a routine security patrol with Afghan forces when the vehicle was struck by the blast before coming under small arms fire from insurgents. It is understood he belonged to the Special Forces Support Group, which was formed in 2006 to assist SAS and Special Boat Service missions.
After a private chapel ceremony for his family, a hearse carrying the Union Flag-draped coffin was driven to the high street of nearby Wootton Bassett for a memorial procession.
Under blue skies and bright sunshine, soldiers lined the streets of the town alongside Royal British Legion veterans, shopkeepers and residents to pay tribute to the fallen men. As the cortege passed along the high street, silence fell and standard-bearers from the Royal British Legion raised their flags. The procession paused by the war memorial, which was covered in floral tributes, and flowers were placed on the hearse by relatives and friends.
Others at the side of the road held aloft posters of the soldier's image and placed flowers on the hearse as it passed. His body had been flown into nearby RAF Lyneham on board a C-17 Globemaster.
Defence Secretary Bob Ainsworth paid tribute to the "highly gifted" Paras and lamented their loss as a "heavy blow".
