British Army

Setting: modern-day British army

Research: variations on "military funeral" + "ceremony" + "honours" and "Tours of duty" + "Time between" and "promotion" and variations thereupon.

Questions:

1. What does a military funeral ceremony actually include?
I want to know what the 'military honours' that are mentioned in news articles are, as I can't find them explained anywhere.

2. How long would it be (on average) between a soldier's first and second tours of duty?

3. Would they be promoted between tours? And to what rank? (assuming he started as a private on his first tour)

Any relevant inforamtion on any of these subjects is also very welcome as i know next to nothing about any of this and am having trouble researching it  :)

Thanks
