Pride over fallen Dagenham hero

What a fitting tribute the Post paid to Rifleman Martin Kinggett who bravely lost his life fighting alongside his comrades in action in Afghanistan on February the 25th. I never met Martin but his dad Andy always speaks of him with much pride and love. O

What a fitting tribute the Post paid to Rifleman Martin Kinggett who bravely lost his life fighting alongside his comrades in action in Afghanistan on February the 25th.

I never met Martin but his dad Andy always speaks of him with much pride and love.

Our young soldiers like Martin Kinggett are doing a very difficult job in a country which is far away from here and our lives.

His passing at such a young age will leave a big hole in the lives of those who knew and loved him.

I am proud Barking and Dagenham Council is doing its bit to honour and remember his life and sacrifice. I salute you Rifleman Martin Kinggett.

Cllr Robert Bailey
