It is with great sadness that the Ministry of Defence must confirm the death of Corporal Barry Dempsey from The Royal Highland Fusiliers, 2nd Battalion Royal Regiment of Scotland, who was killed in Afghanistan on Monday 18 August 2008.

At 0825 hrs local time, a joint Afghan National Army and UK Operational Mentoring Liaison Team were patrolling, when they dismounted in the region of Forward Operating Base Attal, in the Gereshk area of Helmand Province. An improvised explosive device was detonated which resulted in the death of Cpl Dempsey and shrapnel and blast injuries to one other ISAF soldier, an Afghan National Army soldier and the patrol interpreter. Cpl Dempsey and the three casualties were airlifted to the Joint Force Medical Group Facility at Camp Bastion.

"On learning the news of his passing, the Battle Group paused to remember this fine man and brave colleague. We gathered around our simple stone memorial, prayed for him, his wife, son and daughter back in Edinburgh. When we all return home, we will mourn him properly. Quote: Lieutenant Colonel Ed Freely, Commanding Officer The 1st Battalion The Royal Irish Regiment".

Apologies for the belatedness in posting this story..
