Marine killed at Sangin

#1
It is with deepest regret that the Ministry of Defence must announce the death of a Royal Marine from 45 Commando Royal Marines today, Wednesday 25 February, in Selly Oak Hospital , Birmingham . He died as a result of wounds sustained from enemy fire whilst on a reassurance patrol in near Sangin in Northern Helmand on Monday 23 February.

He received immediate medical attention both on the ground and at the ISAF medical facility at Kandahar Airfield, prior to being returned to the UK for further specialist treatment.

Spokesperson for Task Force Helmand, Commander Paula Rowe, said “The death of this brave Marine is a tragedy and his loss will be felt deeply by his family, friends and all those who served alongside him. We extend our deepest sympathy, thoughts and prayers to them at this terrible time.”

Next of kin have been informed and have asked for a 24 hour period of grace before further details are released.

Many many thanks to the brave Medics who did the CasEvac & the MERT team who attended the RGJ lads. Our thoughts are with the Royal Marine & RGJ families and friends at this difficult time.
