Please Give up some of your time to remember the British Service Personnel Killed in Afghanistan.

116 British service personnel have lost their lives in Afghanistan. This is a tribute to them, that shows the human faces behind the statistics. The pictures start with Sergeant Busuttil and work their way forward chronologically until the most recent death of Corporal Dempsey. I know it's quite long ,but giving a bit of your time is nothing compared with what they have given. On principle, I do not delete or block,but please try to keep your comments respectful. There are plenty of other threads where you can voice your anti-everything opinions. Remember these brave people, as they are the people that make us proud and keep us free!
