    Death of a good friend & fellow stalker aged 34 years


    I have just found out that a good buddy & member of my stalking syndicate died in Afgahanistan on Tuesday, he was Major Josh Bowman aged only 34 years.

    He was killed along with 2 of his comand by a rogue Afghan trooper that they were training.

    He will be sadly missed by the stalking syndicate at Newhouse Estate.

    Josh was a keen stalker & had been a member of the syndicate for over 5 years, he had seen active service in Iraq also in the last few years.

    He was one of the nicest blokes you could ever care to meet.

    Our best wishes go out to his family & Friends

    Regards Lee

    Sad news indeed.
    What makes this worse for me was that he was killed at his base where he should be at his safest.
    My sympathies to all who knew him.

    These lads who lay down their young lives are indeed all hero's
    A real waste.

    Very sad. Too many talented people lost in their prime

    Cant imagine how devasating this must be for the family, everytime on the news when they report another young loss i think some of these young lads had seen nothing of life

    Sympathies with his family my thoughts are with them.

    I lost a close family member 27years ago who was serving in the forces, the ultimate sacrafice.

    Another life cut far too short...

    I'm sure plenty of members know someone who has been, or is, out in Afghanistan, and I'm sure that we all keep our fingers crossed that they return unharmed. Unfortunately that isn't always the case.

    Deepest sympathy to his family and friends.
