Operations in Iraq

Corporal Richard Ivell

It is with very deep regret that the Ministry of Defence has to confirm that Corporal Richard Thomas David Ivell was fatally injured in a vehicle accident at Shaibah Logistics Base in southern Iraq on 12 February 2004.

A vehicle mechanic from the Royal Electrical & Mechanical Engineers, he was serving with 2 Close Support Regiment of the Royal Logistic Corps. Aged 29, Corporal Ivell was married with three children and came from near Doncaster, South Yorkshire.
