A tribute to our armed Forces

Another of our armed forces has been killed in Afghanistan.

The soldier, from the Household Cavalry Regiment, serving as part of the Brigade Reconnaissance Force, was killed yesterday afternoon (26 March). He died as a result of a grenade attack which occurred in an area 3 kms south of Sangin district centre, in Helmand Province. He was on a BRF foot patrol and was fatally wounded by a grenade thrown from behind a wall.

His death brings the death toll in this war to 277.

My thoughts go out to his family and friends. Spare a thought for them.
