The 100th British soldier to die in Afghanistan this year was named last night as Lance Corporal Adam Drane.
The soldier, from 1st Battalion The Royal Anglian Regiment, died as a result of small arms fire in the Nad-e Ali area, in central Helmand Province, on Monday.
Colleagues paid tribute to the 23-year-old from Bury St Edmunds as a “popular, quiet and intelligent” soldier.
His parents Desmond and Jackie Drane said there were “no words” to describe their loss.
