In Memoriam: Damian Mulvihill

Corporal Damian Mulvihill of 40 Commando Royal Marines was killed on 20th February 2008 in Helmand Province, Afghanistan.Corporal Mulvihill was leading his section on a patrol near Sangin when he was killed when an IED exploded.
"As a marine, he epitomised the Commando spirit. A courageous and selfless comrade, his cheerfulness in adversity could be guaranteed, and he always demonstrated the very highest standards of professional competence in everything that he undertook."
"He loved the Royal Marines and was looking to move to Commando Training Centre on completion of the tour so he could pass on his wealth of experience and knowledge to recruits. His troop and I will endeavour to follow his example and carry on the high traditions of the Royal Marines that he was so proud of."
