Lieutenant Colonel Mark Purves, Royal Signals, Commanding Officer 14th Signal Regiment (Electronic Warfare), said:
“Bright and engaging, Lance Corporal Brynin was immensely popular and an outstanding soldier in every respect. Having already completed one tour to Afghanistan, his appointment to support the Brigade Reconnaissance Force was indicative of his talent and leadership qualities.
He was fit, determined and genuinely wanted to make a difference. His selection for promotion to full Corporal earlier this year highlighted his flair for his chosen profession.
“Full of energy and an avid fan of Brighton and Hove Albion Football Club, he was also involved in every aspect of Regimental life.
Always seeking excellence, he aspired to attend pre-parachute selection on his return fromAfghanistan; his quality was such that I am confident he would have passed with flying colours.
