    A brave hero. May he R.I.P. and may his family somehow find comfort from the words written about him as a true soldier. God bless and keep the faith.

    The loss of Lieutenant Daniel Clack is devastating for his mum, dad, brother, fiancee and to all who served alongside and under him. There are words aplenty that purport to fill the gap left by his passing, alas I doubt they prove adequate. RIP. We will remember you all.
