PRIVATE Anthony Frampton (above), was known as Anton to his family and friends.
The former Royds Hall High School student was an apprentice welder before he decided to join the Army in 2009 at the age of 18.
Pte Frampton, from Longwood, trained at the infantry base in Catterick winning a top award before enlisting in the 3rd Battalion The Yorkshire Regiment.
In January 2010 he completed a tour of duty in the Falklands.
The Taliban blast that killed Pte Frampton, was the deadliest single attack on British forces in Afghanistan since 2001 – the force of it turned the Warrior upside down and blew off its gun turret.
Pte Frampton leaves behind his mother Margaret Charlesworth, father Gary Evans, stepfather Martin Charlesworth, sisters Gemma and Nicola, great-uncle Pat and stepmother Michelle Evans.
A funeral service for another of the Huddersfield soldiers killed in the blast, Private Daniel Wilford, takes place tomorrow (12.30pm) at Huddersfield Parish Church.
