The bodies of military personnel killed in Afghanistan have since 16 June 2008 been driven to the special armed forces department of pathology at the John Radcliffe Hospital, where post mortems take place.
The cortège passes along Marsh Lane and Headley Way, with the left turn into the hospital road known as “the final turn”. Members of the Royal British Legion always hold tributes in Headington near St Anthony of Padua Church in Headley Way, and members of the general public are welcome to join them.
Since September 2011 the cortège has arrived in Headington from RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire instead of RAF Lyneham in Wiltshire.
