RIP Corporal Doug Grant

Quote:
LATEST: More than a 1,000 mourners have gathered at Linton Military Camp for the funeral of SAS Corporal Doug Grant.

About 1500 people packed the Linton gymnasium for the military funeral, which got underway shortly after 11am.

The 41-year-old from Linton Military Camp, known to those close to him as "Dougie", died 10 days ago after being shot while helping save the lives of three British civilians and two Gurkha security guards.
More...

New Zealand's third casualty in the War on Terror, He died defending innocents and protecting his comrades, and for that he will be remembered.

A man who served his nation well. He left the service before joining it again because it meant that much to him.

One of New Zealand's finest, rest in peace.
