Operations in Afghanistan

Lance Corporal Darren John George

It is with very deep regret that the Ministry of Defence has to confirm that Lance Corporal Darren John George from the Royal Anglian Regiment, serving with the International Security Assistance Force in Kabul, has died after a tragic incident during a patrol on Tuesday, 9 April 2002.

The incident occurred during a security patrol in the Afghan capital, and was the subject of a full inquiry to establish the exact circumstances. However, hostile action was not a factor.

Our most sincere sympathies are with his family at this very difficult time.
