Lance Corporal Foley 'always put his kids first'

Axel used to give me lifts home after exhausting PT sessions, and then he would make me climb all over his childrens' car seats, refusing to take them out in case he needed to take them anywhere. It was simple, his kids came first.

– Sergeant Richard Dawson-Jones, Information Hub Manager
