THEY were known as the Burton Boys.

Neil Dunstan and Luke Taylor are two of the 448 British service personnel who lost their lives in Afghanistan. Dorset and Hampshire have suffered their share of the casualties.

But communities have been shown at their very best in rallying round in grief, support and then helping to build legacies (such as the John Thornton Young Achievers’ Foundation). St Luke’s Church was full to overflowing on Sunday to remember the Burton Boys.

Neil and Luke will never been forgotten by their families or by the community they were a part of. None of them will.
