Stage 6, Remembering the Fallen from Afghanistan

We were delighted to welcome family and friends of those who lost their lives in Afghanistan during Stage 6.

Team 6 was led by Lt Col Andrew Speed, who was the Battalion Second-in-Command during the 2009 tour of Afghanistan.  He was supported by Giles Harris, a Company Commander in Afghanistan in 2009 and soon to be the next Commanding Officer of 1WG, and Gdsm Marcus Monaghan, veteran of two Afghan tours. Andrew and his team were also joined by Andy Haines, father of LSgt David Haines and Paul Noble. 

On this Stage we remembered Pte John Brackpool, Lt Mark Evison, Maj Sean Birchall and LSgt Toby Fasfous who all died in Afghanistan in 2009, as well as Gdsm Gareth Nicholson and Gdsm Mike Marks who died in the Falklands.
