    At a time when we celebrate one of the few good things left in Britain, Elizabeth II, it is hugely sad to have to read of the loss of two of the other good things, Private Gregg Thomas Stone and Corporal Michaell John Thacker. My thoughts are with their respective families and serving comrades. I hope they can draw strength from the knowledge that plenty still care deeply about our service personnel and regret with all sincerity the loss of any. RIP.

    My condolences, Mnistry of Defence, buddies, family of Gregg Stone. We are sad for his death, as is happened on the phase where hopes become reality, but, for our faith, we have the serenity that derived by knowledge He is on the arms of The Father. He is now praying for us and we have him on our hearts. claudio alpaca
