It emerged in June that former British soldier Jordan Gatley had been killed fighting for Ukraine in the city of Sievierodonetsk, according to his family. A senior Ukrainian official praised him as a “true hero”.
Mr Gatley’s family said he left the British Army in March and went to Ukraine to help in the fight against the Russian invasion.
His family said in a Facebook post at the time: “He loved his job and we are so proud of him. He truly was a hero and will forever be in our hearts.”
Mykhailo Podolyak, a Ukrainian presidential adviser, paid tribute to Mr Gatley, saying it took a lot of courage to travel far from home to defend beliefs.
