UK marine killed in Afghanistan

A British marine has been killed in an explosion in southern Afghanistan, the Ministry of Defence has said.
The marine, who served with 40 Commando Royal Marines, was pronounced dead at the scene, an MoD spokesperson said.

The blast took place in the Helmand province where the marine's battle group was on patrol, the MoD added.

Another marine was injured but was described by the MoD as "walking wounded". Next of kin of all personnel have been informed.
O Eternal Lord God,who through many generations hast united and inspired the members of our Corps,grant thy blessings we beseech thee,on Royal Marines serving all round the globe.
Bestow Thy crown of righteousness upon all our efforts and endevours,and may our laurels be those of gallantry and honour,loyalty and courage.We ask these in the Name of Him whose courage never failed,our redeemer Jesus Christ

RIP Marine
oh God I was dreading this, I spared a thought yesturday as to how no Royal Marines have been killed yet in their tour of Afghan, the good can not last.

RIP Marine, your war is over man.
