    It's sad that these stories have just become words with many people now. "A soldier has been killed in an explosion". We all feel it obviously, but I can't even imagine what it must be like for the other soldiers in the patrol to hear a deafening bang and see their mate getting blasted into pieces right in front of them. Must be horrific :cry:



    Rest in Peace

    Very sad news! My deepest sympathy goes out to his family, friends and those who he served with. Words will not be able to describe their grief.

    Again our thoughts are very much with the friends and family. Words are of little use, at such times, but the sentiments are genuine & the loss truly felt.

    RIP

    He sounds like the perfect embodiment of the commando ethos and qualities, someone who the Corps could have done better not to lose.

    RIP.
