Last repatriation of 2008 

Wootton Bassett falls silent for Christmas casualties
The people of Wootton Bassett gathered for the last time in 2008 to pay their respects to two Royal Marines killed in Afganistan just before Christmas.
The bodies of Corporal Robert Deering, 33, and Lance Corporal Benjamin Whatley, 20, were flown to RAF Lyneham and then driven past over 200 people paying tribute on their way to the John Ratcliffe hospital in Oxford.
