The family of Fusillier Samuel Flint have paid tribute to 'a cheeky chappy'.
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.
Sam was always the life and soul of the party, a real ladies man, witty funny, the real cheeky chappy. He was a loving son, the protective brother, courageous nephew, the caring uncle, the loyal grandson that anyone would wish to have.
We want to thank everyone for the kind tributes and strong support.
“Always in our hearts and minds, we love you Sam.”
