    Trooper Jack Sadler was killed in December 2007, when a land mine exploded underneath his army Land Rover in the desert of southern Afghanistan.
    At the inquest into the death of the 21-year-old, in July this year, a coroner in Exeter said the government should explain why such light vehicles were used for army reconnaissance patrols.
    The MoD says safety of personnel is a prime concern and new equipment and vehicles have been delivered to forces.
    Jack was Ian Sadler's only child. Here, he pays a moving tribute to his son
