The mother of a Staffordshire soldier killed in Iraq says she is setting up a national support group to help families bereaved in the same way.
Phillip Hewitt, Leon Spicer and Richard Shearer died last July
Pte Phillip Hewitt, from Tamworth, was killed along with two comrades in a roadside bomb blast in Amarah in July.
Mother Sue Smith said her website-based network, The Military Families Support Group, will also offer support to serving soldiers and their families.
She wants people to be able to call a manned-telephone line for support.
Mrs Smith said: "We're hoping we can get a line where people can ring, hopefully it'll be manned, and also a website so as people can log on and leave a message and we can get back to them."
Pte Hewitt, who was 21, died alongside Pte Leon Spicer, 26, also from Tamworth, and 2nd Lt Richard Shearer, 26, of Nuneaton, Warwickshire. They were all from the 1st Battalion, Staffordshire Regiment.
Their armoured Land Rovers were blown up as they patrolled in Iraq. She hopes to have the support network up and running by the summer.
