Photo journal: A widow's story
Peter and Donna

Donna Mahoney's husband Peter joined the Territorial Army - the UK's part-time reserve defence force - in 1996.

He served in Bosnia in 1998, and then, shortly before the invasion of Iraq, he was called up again. He spent six months there before coming home in July 2003.

Donna says Bosnia had been a wonderful deployment for him "He was telling everybody about his experiences, like he was a superhero" but he found Iraq much more disturbing.
