HARRY'S MATE: James Dunsby became mates with Prince Harry when they served in Afghanistan.

TASMANIAN soldier James Dunsby has been laid to rest with hundreds of people paying respects in a service at Trowbridge in England.

The reservist, who grew up in Tasmania but had been living in the UK, died during SAS selection training in Brecon Beacons.

Corporal Dunsby, 31, was born in Solihull in England but moved to Tasmania, attending St Virgil's College and the University of Tasmania.

He later moved back to Britain and had been living in Trowbridge with his wife, Bryher.

His coffin was covered by a Union Jack flag during the military service on Thursday which was attended by family, friends and fellow servicemen.

His wife spoke at the service.

"I shall miss you more than words could ever convey. What a truly wonderful adventure we had together. You have enriched my life more than I could ever imagine," Mrs Dunsby said.

Brother Joseph Dunsby also paid his respects.

"There was not one person who was influenced more by James than me, I absolutely idolised him," Mr Dunsby said.

"I feel like a huge part of me is gone in the wind. Pull up a pew next to grandad, Churchill and the rest of them and enjoy."

At the end of the service, as Cpl Dunsby's coffin left the churchyard, there was a 21-gun salute.

Cpl Dunsby became friends with Prince Harry while the pair were serving together in Helmand Province, in Afghanistan, in 2008.

He collapsed on July 13 during a hike in extreme heat.

Lance Corporal Craig Roberts and Edward Maher also died on the exercise.

An investigation into their deaths is under way.
