Operations in Iraq

Gunner Duncan Pritchard

It is with deep regret that the Ministry of Defence has to confirm that Gunner Duncan Geoffrey Pritchard, of the Royal Air Force Regiment, died in hospital in the UK on 8 May 2003 from injuries sustained in a traffic accident whilst on duty in Iraq.

Aged 22, he was serving with 16 Squadron RAF Regiment, home-based at RAF Honington in Suffolk.

The media are requested to respect the family’s privacy at this very difficult time.
