Captain Stephen Healey was killed in the line of duty while on active service in Afghanistan, an inquest has ruled.
The 29-year-old from Cardiff was on patrol in a Jackal armoured vehicle when it drove over an improvised explosive device in May last year.
The inquest in Cardiff today heard there were no faults with the vehicle and it was 'overmarked' by a direct hit from the explosion.
