I am Pete Hammond. My son Joshua Hammond, a trooper in the British Army of the 2nd Royal Tank Regiment was killed on July 1, 2009 when a viking armored vehicle was hit by an improvised explosive device near Lashkar Gah in Helmand province, Southern Afghanistan. It has been a grievous moment for the family especially considering the fact that he was only 18 and yet to experience life. Three days ago, I received a letter from his personal lawyer on his wish. A very shocking one and am still perplexed.
However I will need to have a private discussion with you if you can help us out here and be rest assured that the family will appreciate you for the rest of our lives if you can help us. Your reply and on time will help
us make a decision as required by his humble and honest lawyer.
