An inquest is ready to be held into the death of an RAF airman who lost his life riding a motorcycle on the A47 near Scarning.
Senior Aircraftman Tom Pattison, from the Swaffham area, had fought for his country and was 26-years-old when he collided with a lorry just over a year ago.
He had been riding on a stretch of the A47 at Wendling at around 9.30am on April 4 when the incident occurred, and the road was closed for several hours as investigations took place.
Mr Pattison had been a serving member of the RAF Regiment based at RAF Honington, in Suffolk.
The Ministry of Defence confirmed his death in a statement and said his death was a 'huge loss'.
