School tribute to Welsh Guardsman

Lance Corporal Lee Davies' former school has paid tribute to the Welsh Guardsman who died in Helmand Province at the weekend. His body is being repatriated to RAF Brize Norton this afternoon.

Lee was a pupil at Ysgol Uwchradd Aberteifi from 1996 to 2001. We remember him as a witty and popular student who was full of life. We are all shocked by his tragic death, but we know how much he enjoyed his work and how committed he was to the Army. We send our deepest sympathy and condolences to his family at this sad time.

– Nicola James, Ysgol Uwchradd Aberteifi
