Another Loss In Afghanistan
Senior Aircraftman Ryan Tomlin, of 2 Squadron, Royal Air Force Regiment, was killed on Monday, 13 February.
He was taking part in a partnered patrol to reassure and interact with the local population in the Western Dashte area on the edge of Nad-e Ali district in Central Helmand Province when he was fatally wounded by small arms fire from an insurgent attack. He was airlifted to the field hospital at Camp Bastion, where he later died.
SAC Tomlin was on his second tour to Afghanistan.
British military deaths in the war in Afghanistan since 2001 now stand at 398.
Another loss of life in this useless war.
