Rune Westy Zacharias Nielsen died last night of wounds he received in Afghanistan on 31st October. He was 22 years old.
This time last year I noted with indigantion that compensation and support for the families of service people killed in action has been less than I would expect. To date, I have not seen any report to indicate any improvement what so ever.
Rune Westy Zacharias Nielsen died when the country was going to the polls for local elections, consequently his death and the effect it will have on his family, went almost unnoticed.
