It is with sadness that the Ministry of Defence must confirm that Lance Corporal James Ashworth from the 1st Battalion Grenadier Guards was killed in Afghanistan on Wednesday 13 June 2012.
L/Cpl Ashworth, aged 23, was on patrol to disrupt insurgent activity when he was caught in the blast from a grenade in the Nahr-e Saraj district of Helmand province, Afghanistan. He died despite receiving immediate medical treatment.
He was described as an “outstanding soldier” and the regiment “will never forget this quite exceptional man”.
Rest in peace, Lance Corporal Ashworth.
Honi soit qui mal y pense.
