Soldiers from the 4th Battalion the Rifles were among those who attended a bench dedication ceremony for the Maidenhead soldier Daniel Hume today.
The bench in honour of the soldier was unveiled in Boyn Grove Park in front of the 22-year-old's close family and friends, his former colleagues and the Royal Borough mayor Cllr Colin Rayner.
Daniel's parents Wendy Ellis Stafford and Adrian Hume also planted a tree for their son in the park which overlooks Boyne Hill Cricket Ground.
Daniel, 22, was killed by a roadside explosion whilst on patrol with the 4th Battalion The Rifles in Helmand Province in Afghanistan in 2009.
His family and friends have since raised more than £225,878 for Help for Heroes and Care for Casualties, charities that support wounded servicemen and women and their families.
