An Aylesbury man is one of eight servicemen selected to carry Baroness Thatcher’s coffin at her funeral tomorrow (Wednesday).

Thomas Baker, 22, will be representing Royal Naval Air Station Culdrose, Fleet Air Arm.

He was an Aylesbury Grammar School pupil until he left in 2009 and also played for Aylesbury Rugby Club.

The selected men were drawn from ships, squadrons and regiments closely associated with the 1982 Falklands War.
