  1. 2 British soldiers killed in Road Traffic Accident in Afghanistan
    20 Sep 07
    It is with much sadness that the Ministry of Defence must confirm that two soldiers serving with the 2nd Battalion The Mercian Regiment (Worcesters and Foresters) have died in a road traffic accident in southern Afghanistan today, Thursday 20 September 2007.

    Shortly after 3am local time, the soldiers were taking part in a re-supply mission in support of Operation Palk Wahel, 5km south west of their patrol base in an area north of Gereshk, Helmand province, when the Pinzgauer vehicle they were travelling in came off the road.

    Sadly, both soldiers were declared dead at the scene. No enemy forces were involved.

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