Lieutenant Colonel Dino Bossi, Commanding Officer 1st Battalion Welsh Guards said: "Lance Corporal Lee Davies loved being a soldier – it was who he was. He passed out from the Infantry Training Centre Catterick in April 2010.
"He swiftly made a name for himself for his enthusiasm, fitness and professionalism as an infantry soldier and in less than two years was promoted to the rank of Lance Corporal.To have made such a profound impact so early in his career speaks volumes about the quality of the man we have lost."
