– Corporal William Thomas Savage’s wife Lyndsey
I am completely devastated by this news but extremely proud of 'Sav' and everything that he has achieved. He loved being a soldier!
I have lost the love of my life and the father of our son. I know his life will live on through so many amazing memories that we shared together.
He will be deeply missed amongst family, friends and the Regiment.
The families and friends of three soldiers killed in Afghanistan have been paying tributes to the men. Corporal William Savage, Fusilier Samuel Flint and Private Robert Hetherington died in a bomb attack on Tuesday.
