It is with profound sadness that the Ministry of Defence must confirm the death of a soldier from the 1st Battalion The Worcestershire and Sherwood Foresters in southern Afghanistan today, Sunday 24 June 2007.
The soldier Drummer Thomas Wright, aged 21, was killed at around 09.58 hrs local time roughly six kilometres outside of Lashkar Gah in Helmand province. The soldier’s armoured ‘Snatch’ land rover was escorting a military team surveying the site for a new road project linking several Afghan villages in the Babaji area when it was caught in an explosion.
