In Memoriam: Kevin Thompson

Private Kevin Thompson from 19 Combat Service Support Battalion died at Selly Oak on 6th May 2007 from injuries received when his vehicle was hit by an IED explosion in Basra.

His CO said: "We will do as he would have wanted and get back in the truck and back down the road, all the while remembering our brave friend who never once flinched in the face of danger. We are deeply proud of Kevin Thompson. He was an outstanding soldier, colleague and friend."

His close friend, Private Luke Ward, said: "Tomo was a truly professional and well respected soldier. He was a kind and very close mate of mine and on operations I thought of him as a brother."
