Date set for inquest into Barrow soldier’s death
Last updated at 14:32, Tuesday, 21 January 2014
A DATE has been set for the inquest of a heroic Barrow soldier who was fatally wounded while serving in Afghanistan.
Kingsman David Shaw, of 1st Battalion the Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment, was wounded in action in Lashkar Gah in Helmand Province, Afghanistan on January 14 last year.
He died two days later in Birmingham’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital on January 16.
Kgn Shaw’s inquest is set to take place over two days on February 19 and 20 in Barrow Town Hall.
Following their son’s death, parents David and Jenny Shaw, of Flass Meadows, Barrow, took the difficult decision to donate their 23-year-old son’s organs – saving the lives of four seriously-ill patients.
Their decision was honoured with a new award by global healthcare charity, the Order of St John alongside NHS Blood and Transplant.
Hundreds of people turned out to pay their respects in February when Kgn Shaw’s funeral took place.
