Soldier 40 Regt RA KAS AFGN 250709

Rest in peace mate.

It is with great sadness that the Ministry of Defence must confirm that a soldier from 40th Regiment Royal Artillery (The Lowland Gunners), attached to The Black Watch, 3rd Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland, has been killed in Afghanistan today, 25 July 2009.

The soldier was killed as a result of an explosion that happened whilst on a vehicle patrol in Lashkar Gah District, central Helmand Province, this morning.

Spokesman for Task Force Helmand, Lieutenant Colonel Nick Richardson said

"He was one soldier, who was here for one cause, to help the Afghan people. This true hero paid the ultimate sacrifice and his memory will live with us forever. We mourn his loss and our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends at this very sad time."

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