Corporal Jack Stanley, who sadly passed away in April as a result of wounds sustained in Afghanistan, has been given a fitting memorial at his old school.
As a part of “Different Day”, selected Todmorden High School students constructed a memorial garden and planted a tree in his honour.
A plaque celebrating his life and his dedication to his regiment will be placed alongside.
Pictures of Jack serving in Afghanistan were mounted alongside the garden, along with a picture of his favourite football team, Bolton Wanderers.
Jack’s mother was present during what was a very moving day.
Year nine student Jessica Arrowsmith, who knew Jack well, said: “Jack would have appreciated these marks of respect.
“Everyone who knew Jack thought a lot about him. We miss him loads.”
Headteacher Helen Plaice said: “The school wanted to have a permanent reminder of this excellent soldier who gave his life for his country.
“We will see his garden every time we enter the main gates.”
