  1. It is with deep regret that the Ministry of Defence has confirmed the death of Private Jason Lee Rawstron of 2nd Battalion, The Parachute Regiment in Afghanistan.
    Private Rawstron was killed when his patrol were engaged in an exchange of fire with the Taliban near Forward Operating Base GIBRALTAR on 12 September 2008.

    It is with great sadness that the Ministry of Defence must confirm the death of a soldier from 2nd Battalion The Parachute Regiment in southern Afghanistan on Saturday 13 September 2008.
    The soldier was on a routine patrol near Kajaki, in Helmand province, when he was killed in an explosion. The cause of the explosion is being investigated.
