In a sombre ceremony last week, Tina said her final farewells to her husband in their hometown of Liverpool. Clad in black, Tina cut a solemn figure as she led the procession of mourners from her home, with family, friends, and members of Paul's regiment in attendance, many donning regimental ties.

The crowd, dressed in dark attire, supported Tina as she bid farewell to her beloved spouse, whom she wed in 2010.

Photos obtained by MailOnline captured the poignant moment pallbearers, believed to be from Paul's regiment and adorned with medals, carried his coffin at the funeral in the coastal city, escorting him to his last place of rest.
