Another sad homecoming 

First female casualty amongst Afganistan soldiers paid tribute to today
 
It was a simple message but it summed up perfectly the thoughts of hundreds of people in Wootton Bassett today.
 
A tribute left to soldier Corporal Sarah Bryant, the first female casualty of the Afgan conflict, who died alongside three brave comrades last week.

"To an English rose.
And her comrades.
Rest in Peace"
the tribute left on the Wootton Bassett centotaph in honour of Corporal Sarah Bryant, 26, and three Territorial Army special forces soldiers, Cpl Sean Reeve, 28; L/Cpl Richard Larkin, 39; and Paul Stout, 31, who died in Afganistan last week
 
The high street lined once again by hoardes of people paying their respects.
 
The second occasion in a week that fallen war heroes have received such a solemn homecoming, as they travelled through Swindon from RAF Lyneham to the John Radcliffe hospital in Oxford.
