Latest update, released officially to Theresa tonight at 1930 UK time. The first body found has been confirmed 100% as being that of Tony. It is the worst of news, but in the circumstances the best of outcomes for the family. At least now Theresa, Alan and the rest of the family can draw a line and pick up their lives at some point in the future.

It is a measure of the compassion that Theresa shows for others that her heart is breaking not just for Tony, but for the families of those who can but sit and wait for news of discovery and identification - for them the wait goes on.

Theresa is drawing great strength from the wishes that she has seen already expressed on this thread, and also on the http://www.contact.armyaviation.co.uk/ thread. Now that the terrible wait is over, please feel free to leave your thoughts on this thread. I note that there have been 3700+ hits, but (understandably, given the uncertain circumstances) not many replies. If you can leave some information that would identify you to Theresa, as some have already managed to do without compromising their handles, she would be very grateful.

At the moment the plan is to repatriate Tony through Heathrow, probably on Tuesday morning. Just as soon as final arrangements are made the time, place and form of events will be posted here. Thanks for your support for Theresa in this unbearably tragic time.
