Fusilier Samuel Flint died while on patrol with the 2nd Battalion Scots. His family have issued a tribute to him via the ministry of defence. " The whole family is completely devastated. Everyone should know that Sam loved his job and made his whole family and everyone that knew him very proud."
They said "Sam was always the life and soul of the party, a real ladies man, witty funny, the real cheeky chap. He was a loving son, the protective brother, courageous nephew, the caring uncle, the loyal grandson that anyone would wish to have."
