It is with deep regret that the Ministry of Defence must confirm the deaths of Marine Neil Dunstan and Marine Robert McKibben, both from the UK Landing Force Command Support Group, on Wednesday 12 November 2008.

Both men were killed by an explosion in the Garmsir District of southern Helmand, at 1647 hrs local time, while operating as part of Task Force Helmand's Information Exploitation Group. They were taking part in a routine joint patrol with soldiers from the Afghan National Security Forces when their Jackal vehicle was struck by an explosive device.

Despite the best efforts of medics, both men were pronounced dead at the scene. A member of the Afghan National Security Forces also lost his life and a third Royal Marine was seriously injured.
