Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  5. British soldier is killed in Iraq

    The soldier was on patrol in a Warrior Armoured Fighting Vehicle
    A British soldier has been killed by a roadside bomb in Basra, southern Iraq, the Ministry of Defence has said.
    The soldier, from the 2nd Battalion, The Duke of Lancaster's Regiment, was killed while taking part in a routine patrol in Basra City.

    The Warrior Armoured Fighting Vehicle which he was travelling in was targeted by a roadside bomb.

    He was airlifted to the Field Hospital at Shaibah Logistics Base, but died later as a result of his injuries.

    There were no other casualties.

    The MoD said the soldier's family, who have been informed of their relative's death, have asked for a period of grace before further details are released.

    The total number of UK troops killed in operations in Iraq now stands at 127.

    Of those, 96 died in action. The rest of the deaths were caused by accidents, natural causes or illness, remain unexplained, or are still under investigation.
