Pembrokeshire County Council have paid tribute to the soldier who was killed in Afghanistan today.
Pembrokeshire is shocked and saddened by today’s news. I know that all right-thinking men and women in Pembrokeshire will want to send their deepest sympathy to the brave soldier’s family as they face up to their tragic loss.
I also want to send condolences to his larger “family” – the 14th Signal Regiment stationed at Cawdor Barracks, Brawdy, which will also be grieving today.
We have an historic and long association with the Armed Forces here in Pembrokeshire and this bitter news underlines the sacrifice they are sometimes called to make on our behalf.
