Sad news. Knew him in a beer sense, I think it was from the amicale but might have been as "passager" through Aubagne when I was Chef D'Etage.

Legionnaire tu est, Legionnaire tu sera.

He met his Camerone and fell fighting under the same honourable circumstances with "Honneur et Fidelite".

THE funeral of a Liverpool man killed when terrorists laid siege to a gas plant in Algeria was held today.

Friends and family of Paul Morgan, 46, from Aigburth, gathered at Christ Church in Linnet Lane from 12pm.

Mr Morgan, a security expert who worked at the In Amenas plant, died along with 37 other foreign nationals and a large number of troops and terrorists in the three-day armed siege last month.

Mr Morgan, a veteran of the first Gulf War, was the first Briton killed at In Amenas when terrorists ambushed a minibus he was escorting to the airport.

A former soldier in the French Foreign Legion, he was described by his family as a “true gentleman who died doing the job he lovedâ€￾.

A service for the other Liverpool man who died in the crisis, Allerton dad-of-two Garry Barlow, took place at St Mary’s Church in West Derby yesterday.

An inquest into the deaths of both men and the other three Britons killed was opened last week in West Sussex, with coroner Penny Schofield promising a “thoroughâ€￾ inquiry into the circumstances surrounding the tragedy.

The government has said talks are ongoing with Algerian officials and companies who employ up to 450 British nationals in the north African state, after David Cameron’s visit last week.

Family flowers only were requested for Mr Morgan’s funeral, but donations will be collected for Help For Heroes.

Thanks for the link hannibal, I just found out that Scouse is dead, I first met him when I was doing basic and he slipped me 100 ff ( £10),
later met him in the REC, a good man by anyones standards, RIP Scouse.

Met him in the infirmary during basic at Castel. He'd just finished his Cpl's cadre and was in with a bad back, I was an EV with a broken ankle. Gave me the low down on what to expect and mostly importantly, was generous with his beer! Good man, real comrade and from what I've read died with his boots on.

My ultimate respects. there is nothing I can say that would give justice to a fallen Legionnaire. May his soul rest within the gates of heaven in Gods Legion Entrangere!
