There is so little to say, except that I pray his loss is not in vain. I hope that in the years to come the pain his family must be feeling is slowly replaced by pride and when we win the war on terror - which we surely must, his name will be up there with those that made the ultimate sacrifice to keep all the rest of us safe.

I was privileged to teach Ashley at Hob Moor Junior School. He was well mannered, co-operative, helpful, patient and had a lovely sense of humour. He was a joy to teach and I was deeply saddened to learn of his death.
I send my condolences to his family.
