Family and friends of the rifleman Daniel Hume who died fighting in Afghanistan will attend a bench dedication ceremony in his honour.
The popular Maidenhead soldier was killed by a roadside bomb while serving with the 4th Battalion the Rifles in Helmand Province in 2009.
His mother Wendy Ellis Stafford has invited members of the 22-year-old's battalion to the ceremony in Boyn Grove Park on Monday, March 18, from 11am.
She and Daniel's father Adrian will plant a tree for their son on the brow of a hill in the park that overlooks The Altwood School and Boyn Hill Cricket Club ground.
"It's going to be a lovely location and a fantastic place for people to spend some time," said Wendy.
