The Royal Marine's death is believed to have been from natural causes.
According to the Mirror :

A Royal Marine Commando has died on the Afghanistan front line following a sudden illness while fighting the Taliban.

The special forces hero was rushed to a military hospital at Britain’s Camp Bastion base in Helmand Province but died yesterday.

It is thought he served with the elite Special Boat Service, which has played a major role in targeting the Taliban throughout the Afghan campaign, but the illness he suffered is not thought to be related to fighting the enemy.
