Funeral For Dorset Soldier Shot In Afghanistan

Mourners will gather today (4th March) for the funeral of a soldier who was shot dead in Afghanistan.

Private Conrad Lewis of 4th Battalion The Parachute Regiment, was killed alongside a colleague, as they patrolled an area in the north of Nad-e Ali district of Helmand province on February 9th.

They had been on a foot patrol to reassure the local population and gather census information when they came under enemy fire.

Pte Lewis, 22, a reservist soldier from Bournemouth, was described by his family as someone who “made you feel good about life”.

His funeral, with full military honours, will take place at The Collegiate Church of St Mary in Warwick.

A firing party will fire a volley of shots outside the church after the service.
