Flowers for a Fusilier


Lee Rigby funeral tributes: 'my daddy my Hero'

The two-year-old son of Fusilier Lee Rigby - who was murdered in the street in Woolwich - wears a t-shirt with the words “My Daddy My Hero" on the back to his father's funeral.

His family had asked his funeral to be a celebration of his life, and as thousands of people gathered to pay tribute to the murdered soldier Lee Rigby, the service was littered with tales of his sense of humour, good nature and love of his family.
Fulisier Rigby, 25, killed outside his barracks in Woolwich in May, was a “hero”, a “talented soldier”, and a “loyal friend and brother-in-arms”, his commanding officer, Lt Col Jim Taylor said.
But he was also a practical joker with a love of boybands and had about him a “natural swagger”.
Mourners, being clapped by thousands who had lined his funeral cortege route and gathered in the centre of Bury, Greater Manchester, were led by his wife, Rebecca, 30, who walked in with their two-year-old son, Jack, who was wearing a blue t-shirt with the words “My Daddy My Hero" on the back.
They were joined by Fusilier Rigby’s mother Lyn, 46, who was in tears as she held hands with husband, Ian, 54, the soldier's stepfather.
Today on behalf of Submariners everywhere we laid a wreath at the fusiliers memorial in Bury in memory of Lee Rigby who's funeral takes place tomorrow the 12th July 2013

Flowers for a Fusilier
Laid these today at Faslane cemetery next to the memorial to the crew of the submarine K13 who perished here in the Gareloch.
I was the only one there, it was very peaceful, a fitting location for this young mans flowers to be placed. Aye
