Sadly, I learned today (via the Mayor’s office) that a second member of 36 Engineer Regiment (stationed at Invicta Park Barracks) was killed in Afghanistan last Friday (9th Nov). Lance Corporal Jake Alderton was just 22 years old.
I’ve been thinking and thinking about how to finish this posting, but there’s nothing more that can really be said is there? I looked up his details on the Ministry of Defence’s website where it was clear to see that Jake was clearly a popular, friendly and dedicated soldier who will be very sadly missed and grieved for by his friends and family. My condolences go to them all.Leave a comment
