has to confirm that Fusilier Gordon Campbell Gentle
was killed in an improvised explosive device attack
on British military vehicles in Basrah on 28 June 2004.

Highland Fusiliers, and was single.
Colonel Paul Cartwright, the Commanding Officer of the
1st Battalion Royal Highland Fusiliers, said:

and always willing to help others. His enthusiasm
for his job immediately caught the eye of his peers
and superiors alike."
thoughts are with his family at this very difficult
time; the media are very strongly asked to respect their
