Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. A soldier from the 1st Battalion Welsh Guards has been killed in an explosion in southern Afghanistan, the MoD said.

    Next of kin have been informed. A total of 174 British service personnel have died in Afghanistan since 2001

    That is all the details on the bbc website

    Third soldier killed in Afghanistan
    A British soldier has been killed in Afghanistan while taking part in one of the UK military's biggest co-ordinated air operations of modern times, the Ministry of Defence said.

    The soldier from the 1st Battalion Welsh Guards is the third to be killed in southern Afghanistan this weekend and his death takes the number of UK service personnel killed in the country since the start of operations in October 2001 to 174. Next of kin has been informed.

    He was killed while on foot and taking part in a "deliberate operation" near Gereshk, in central Helmand, southern Afghanistan, as part of Operation Panthers Claw, which was launched to drive the Taliban out of strongholds in and around Babaji, north of Lashkar Gah, Helmand.
