A 32-year-old Fiji-born British Army soldier was killed while on duty in Afghanistan last Friday.

The Guardian reports that Corporal Duane Groom was killed in the Nahr-e Saraj district of Helmand province Afghanistan when his vehicle hit a roadside bomb.

Groom was part of the Queen's Company, 1st Battalion Grenadier Guards.

The Ministry of Defence said Groom was protecting his Afghan and British colleagues as they withdrew from a successful operation, when he was killed.

Lieutenant Colonel James Bowder, Commanding Officer, and 1st Battalion Grenadier Guards, said Groom was an outstanding soldier in every respect.

Bowder said he was tough, keen, and unflappable and was utterly committed to his fellows and the cause.

Groom who was born in Suva joined the British Army in 2007 and his next of kin have been informed.

The deaths bring the number of members of UK forces to have died since operations in Afghanistan began in October 2001 to 430.
