  1. It is with deep sadness that the Ministry of Defence must announce the death of a British soldier from 2nd Battalion The Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment in the Al Ashar district of central Basra today, Monday 23 April 2007.

    The soldier was providing top cover protection for a Warrior armoured vehicle on a routine patrol when he was killed by small arms fire. He was evacuated to Basra Palace, but tragically died of his injuries.

    No other soldiers were hurt in the incident.

    The soldier’s next of kin have been informed and have requested a period of grace before further details are released.
