    It is with great sadness that the Ministry of Defence must announce the death of a soldier from 1st Battalion The Rifles on 16 February 2009.
    Ministry of Defence

    He died from wounds sustained as a result of enemy fire during a joint UK and Afghan National Army foot patrol to dominate ground in the district of Nawa, south of Lashkar Gah, Helmand province.

    Spokesperson for Task Force Helmand, Commander Paula Rowe, said:

    "Task Force Helmand mourns the loss of this brave soldier and we offer our thoughts and prayers to all his family, friends and comrades at this difficult time."

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