Now confirmed as British. This is MoD:

It is with profound regret that we must today, Monday 15 January 2007, confirm the death of a British serviceman in Helmand province, Afghanistan . Next of kin are in the process of being informed and no further details will be released until that has been completed.

Another brave soul too soon lost by those who loved him.

My sincere condolences to those who grieve and my thoughts are with all those on operations still doing the business in spite of the loss of their oppos.

Life is eternal; and love is immortal;
and death is only a horizon; and a horizon
is nothing save the limit of our sight.
