In Memoriam: Luke Simpson

Private Luke Simpson, 21, from the 1st Battalion, The Yorkshire Regiment was killed in southern Iraq on Friday 9th February 2007. Pte Simpson was out on patrol when the vehicle he was driving was hit by a roadside bomb.

"His loss is devastating as he was such a positive influence on the Platoon. He never complained and always made light of difficulties. He was simply a great soldier to have around and be around."
