The family of Fusilier Samuel Flint whose body will be repatriated to the UK today from Afghanistan said they were completely devastated by his death. In a statement the family paid tribute to their "cheeky chappy" saying:
"Sam was always the life and soul of the party, a real ladies man, witty funny, the real cheeky chappy.
"He was a loving son, the protective brother, courageous nephew, the caring uncle, the loyal grandson that anyone would wish to have."
