REME soldier killed in Afghanistan 20-01-08

It is with deep regret that the Ministry of Defence must confirm that a Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (REME) soldier attached to 5 Regiment Royal Artillery has been killed and five others injured in southern Afghanistan yesterday, Sunday 20 January 2008.

The company were disrupting enemy forces and reassuring local Afghans when a vehicle they were travelling in was hit by a roadside minestrike approximately three kilometres north east of Musa Qaleh.

The casualties were evacuated by helicopter to the ISAF medical facilities at Camp Bastion and Kandahar airfield. Sadly one of the soldiers was pronounced dead at the scene.

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

RIP soldier.

condolences to the family.

hope the injured lads have a speedy and full recovery.
RIP Fella

Condolences to the family.

Another sad loss
