Drummer Rigby was a loving father, with a very bubbly character.
He was an excellent Drummer, loved his job and was a highly popular member of the Platoon.
He had served in Afghanistan as an FSG Operator and was very diligent in his work.
He was always around when needed and will be sorely missed by all members of the Second Fusiliers Corps of Drums.
Once a Fusilier, always a Fusilier.
