British soldier killed in Iraq
29 Dec 06
It is with deep regret that the Ministry of Defence must confirm that a UK serviceman was killed yesterday, Thursday 28 December 2006, in Basrah, southern Iraq.

The soldier, from 2nd Battalion, The Duke of Lancaster's Regiment, was taking part in a routine patrol in Basra City when the Warrior Armoured Fighting Vehicle he was travelling in was targeted by a roadside bomb. He was very seriously injured and airlifted to the Field Hospital at Shaibah Logistics Base, but unfortunately died later as a result of his injuries. There were no other casualties.

Next of Kin, who have now been informed, have requested a period of grace before further details are released.


Rest in Peace young man, God be good to those he leaves behind.

RIP young Man,
Stand down.

My sincere condolences to the family & friends as well as a speedy recovery for the wounded.
