An Aberdeen community is to name a park in the city after a young soldier killed while serving in Iraq.
The park in Northfield will be named after L/Cpl Douglas
Lance Corporal Allan Douglas, 22, died in January 2006 after being shot by a sniper while erecting a radio mast on top of a police station in Maysan.
His family said the former Highlander used the grassy area in Aberdeen's Northfield area as a playground when he was a child.
L/Cpl Douglas's mother Diane described the gesture as a fitting tribute.
At the inquest into the soldier's death last November, deputy assistant coroner for Oxfordshire, Selena Lynch, said: "This brave young man died while on active service.
"Because the war was over the only proper verdict is one of unlawful killing and I do hope that one day his killer is brought to justice."
Relatives said at the time of his death that L/Cpl Douglas had not wanted to return to fight in Iraq.
His mother Diane said after his death: "It wasn't his war. But as he said, he's in the Army, that's his job."
The soldier later had a full military funeral in Aberdeen but without a traditional eight gun salute, at the request of his family.
