Another mother who lost her son in Afghanistan spoke out against the conflict ahead of his funeral on Thursday saying it is "not our war."
Trooper James Leverett, aged 20, died earlier this month. His mother Sharon said: "There's too many families going through what I'm going through. We're losing too many people out there.
"I do think we shouldn't be there. I do think this is not our war."
Trooper Leverett left behind his stepfather, three younger brothers and heavily pregnant girlfriend, Tiffany Lound.
Ms Lound said: "Although I knew he didn't want to go out there in the first place, he knew that was what he joined for."
Rose Gentle of Military Families Against the War said the group's hearts and thoughts went out to Trooper Leverett's family and friends. She said "devastated" kin want "their boys to come home now.
"Every day we turn on the telly and there's another one, another two. Families are extremely concerned."
325 British service personel have now been killed in Afghanistan.
