    The loss of Private Christopher Lake adds to the unfolding toll of tragedy this week. What his loss must extract from his mum, dad and wider family, friends and serving comrades can only be imagined. RIP. We will go on remembering the departed while knowing there are those who pain will always linger. All this is hugely sad.

    As an Army wife of 25 years.. you have my up-most respect and admiration.
    Even though we never knew you personally, you are still part of the Army family and, even in memory, you always will be.
    I know that you followed the same morals and beliefs that many of us (civilian/military) do.
    We will always remember you, alongside the many who have given their lives in standing up and putting their lives on the line for what they know is right.
    We are so sorry that you had to give your life for what you believed in.. but please know that we hold you in the highest regard for your sacrifice and always will. x
