Cpl Guy, 37, of the 1st Battalion The Royal Anglian Regiment, was killed while leading his section to assist a group of Afghan soldiers pinned down by enemy fire during an insurgent ambush in Nad-e Ali District of Helmand Province.
His wife Emma, who he married in 2006, said: "Alex was kind. A happy, full-of-life and kind hearted man, with a passion for his work and family."
A soldier from 1st Battalion The Royal Anglian Regiment who was killed yesterday in Afghanistan is expected to be named today. His next of kin have been informed. The soldier is the 419th member of UK forces to have died since operations in Afghanistan began in October 2001.
Spokesman for Task Force Helmand, Major Ian Lawrence said: "It is with deep sorrow that I must confirm that a soldier from 1st Battalion The Royal Anglian Regiment has been killed by enemy action whilst deployed on operations in the Nad-e Ali district of Helmand Province.
