The son of Fusilier Lee Rigby arrived at his father's funeral today wearing a t-shirt that said: 'My Daddy, My Hero'.
Jack, Rigby two, arrived at the funeral wearing a blue t shirt with 'My Daddy's A Fusilier. Lee Rigby' printed on the front.
He was joined by hundreds of mourners at the service for the 25-year-old, who was hacked to death outside Woolwich barracks in east London on May 22.
The service began with a hymn and a reading by Sean Sheer, one of Lee's fellow soldiers and a family friend, bringing laughter from mourners.
He spoke about how they had become friends, and how Lee had adored being a father.
Mr Sheer said he first met Fusilier Rigby when he was posted to the Fusiliers in 2008 and found him the 'most annoying, campest man I have ever met', citing his singing and love of boyband Westlife as the reason.
Mr Sheer said his comrade's young son came 'crashing' into his life but Lee 'took to fatherhood instantly'.
'Everywhere Lee went, Jack went with him,' he said.
'Lee's time on this earth was tragically cut short' but he was a 'loving father and devoted husband'.
More than 1,000 people lined the streets to pay their respects to the soldier brutally killed in broad daylight.

RIP, Drummer Rigby.
I hope England wakes up soon to the evil of mohammedism.
Wait, he has a ‘wife’ AND a ‘fiance?’

A man reported to be a serving soldier is dead and two people have been shot in Woolwich, south east London, after what Sky sources understand is being treated as a terrorist attack. Downing Street has called a meeting of the Government’s Cobra emergency committee after the incident in John Wilson Street, which David Cameron described as “truly shocking”. Sky sources understand that senior police officers believe the killing was likely to be a politically-motivated Islamist terrorist attack. Dozens of weapons - including a number of knives - and pools of blood could be seen on the ground, where a man wearing a Help for Heroes T-shirt is said to have been attacked by two men.
