Private Richard Hunt, who served in Afghanistan, was the 200th British soldier who was killed in combat since the beginning of the conflict, according to WalesOnline.co.uk. He is now being honored at a local horticultural show at Cardiff Castle from April 8-10.

The event is sponsored by the Welsh Warrior Richard Hunt Foundation, which was founded by his mother, Hazel. The organization helps troops from Welsh's regiment who were injured in combat.

Hunt is also being honored with funeral flowers in the form of Welsh Warrior daffodils.

"The aim of the foundation is to make sure Richard did not die in vain, and events like the RHS Show Cardiff help to keep fallen servicemen and women in the public eye," his mother told the news source. "As a proud Welsh Warrior himself, Richard would love the idea of a Daffodil being named in his honor," his mother told the news source.

Daffodils are also being used for a good cause in the United States, where yellow sympathy flowers are being sent to cancer patients and their families on March 16, according to MLive.com.
