The War Rages On
I always feel terribly sad when posting the picture of a member of the armed forces who has been killed in the line of duty, because I know the photograph was picked by the soldier prior to deployment.
Above is Captain Stephen Healey, 29, from the 1st Battalion, The Royal Welsh, who was killed on Saturday when the vehicle in which he was travelling was blown up by a bomb in Afghanistan. He was originally from Cardiff and was commanding the Combined Force Burma reconnaissance platoon.
Capt Healey's death brings the number of British Service personnel killed in Afghanistan to 415.
No words can express my anger at this continual, unnecessary loss of life.
