In Memoriam: Allan Douglas

Lance Corporal Allan Douglas, 22, of The Highlanders (Seaforth, Gordons and Camerons) serving in the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards Battle Group was killed on 30th January 2006 while on patrol in Al Amarah, Iraq.

"Lance Corporal Allan Douglas was extremely well liked by all who knew him, especially his comrades in the Mortar Platoon. He displayed all the qualities of professionalism, drive and humour that make a Scottish soldier"

"Allan was the perfect soldier for service in Iraq. Chosen to serve in Delta Company Headquarters because of his own self-discipline and reliability he was a natural soldier: fit, trustworthy and at ease in often difficult situations where he never seemed to get down or become tired."
