Sorrow for the fallen, as they serve, ever faithful, under the banner of "Dieu et mon droit".

The colours you honour, fly in your names to remember your valour.

On Sunday morning, an as yet un-named Royal Marine died of his injuries in a Birmingham hospital. His death brings the total of service people killed while serving their country in Afghanstan to 300.
Bear in mind we only have a total of all in the full time Armed Services of less than 200,000 people. There are currently about 95000 deployed in Afghanistan.
