Not sad eyes but a determined and duty expression in that he will make those who have taken his comrade and brother in arms away will be found and dealt with.

One of the most difficult tasks that can be bestowed upon a Soldier, and that's the carry the body of a friend and colleague! Total respect to our troops serving over seas!

We shall remember them!

I feel very uncomfortable about the possible encroachment on private grief here, did the grieving soldier give his permission for his image to be used on an amateur photography website? I am presuming that amongst the heart-rending grief of relatives and colleagues there were people there pointing cameras, totally inappropriately in my opinion. Sorry.

Thanks for all your comments, I respect them all. I was there to record the funerals for the Rifles and in the main I managed to omit the grieving relatives. At the first funeral I attended I did have a chat with the pall bearers and I have group photos of them. The rifleman was one of several at each of the three funerals. The Supportive photo in this set of three is the parents of one of the fallen and I think it is the most poignant of them all.

I apologise in that case for raising my concerns, I am sometimes required to film TV news events that I would rather not attend. There is occasionally a justification for the press intrusion but never for amateur photographers I am sure you agree. Well done for the good work that you have done for the regiment and I hope you can forgive me for expressing my discomfort.
