is with great regret that the Ministry of Defence has
to confirm the death of Acting Lance Corporal Steven Jones following the loss of an RAF
C-130K Hercules aircraft over Iraq on 30 January 2005.
Aged 25 and single, he served with the Royal Signals
and came from Fareham.
family have issued the following statement:
worked hard, played hard and lived life to the max
whether it be skydiving or bungee jumping. Words will
never be able to express the loss that we feel today.
He was always adventurous, fun loving and had a wicked
sense of humour. Steve will forever be in the hearts
of those that knew him best. The family would like
to request that they and his friends are allowed to
grieve together in peace."
family have specifically requested that the media do
not approach them.
