“Fiji is a small island and when a Fijian soldier is killed the loss is felt by everyone.”

Freddie served with distinction in Bosnia and Iraq during six years in the Army and is now with the Territorials. He is due to leave for a tour of duty in Afghanistan in October, where he will be based for five months.
