A3102 to Lyneham
A3102 to Lyneham
For some time now the coffins containing soldiers killed in the war in Afghanistan have been repatriated at RAF Lyneham a few kilometres west of here. They are then conveyed along this road and through Wootton Bassett where a tradition has developed of saluting the hearses carrying the coffins LinkExternal link is typical coverage. Someone, not local, came up with the idea of naming the A3102 the 'Highway of Heroes' as has been done in Canada in the case of a highway in Ontario LinkExternal link Thankfully in my view there has been little support for the idea.
