Another gone in Iraq

British Soldier killed in road traffic accident in Iraq
3 Feb 06

It is with deep regret that the Ministry of Defence has confirmed that a British soldier from the 9th/12th Lancers, and part of the Basra Rural South Battlegroup, has died in Iraq following a road traffic accident on the evening of 2 February 2006.

The accident occurred on the outskirts of Basrah City, in Basrah province, at 2317hrs local time (2017hrs GMT). The incident is under investigation, but there is no suggestion of hostile involvement.

There was one other casualty who has been taken to medical facilities at Shaibah; he is expected to be released from hospital shortly.

The soldier's family have been informed and asked for a period of grace in which to come to terms with their loss. More information will be released in due course.

RIP Mate.

There but for the grace of god. RIP.

Please no more.
News of the deaths of British Army comrades is becoming depressingly frequent in these threads.
May this hero rest in peace and I extend my sincere condolences to his bereaved family and friends.
Let us pray there are no more.

Rest In Peace

Deepest Condolences to family and friends

101 not out! Nice one Mr Bliar.
