I'm extremely saddened to hear of yet another death in Afghanistan, and this time of a young man who lives in my town.

My partner came home from Afghanistan 8 months ago and I am so thankful he did when so many families are losing men they love. My thoughts are with Rifleman Kingget's family and friends, nobody can understand what you are going through.

But be proud knowing that your boy died doing what most British men are not brave enough to do. I'm thankful to him for that and I'm proud of a young Dagenham boy for doing an amazing job.

RIP brave soldier, you have done your time in hell
