About Lee
This is a tribute to Lee Brownson. Corporal Lee Brownson from 3rd Battalion The Rifles was killed as a result of an IED explosion near Sangin, in Helmand Province on Friday 15th January 2010.
During his time in the army Corporal Brownson has served in Northern Ireland, Sierra Leone, Cyprus, Iraq, Kosovo and Afghanistan. He completed the Platoon Serjeants Battle Course in Brecon in March 2009 gaining the highest possible grade. Corporal Brownson assumed the role of section commander with 2 Platoon, A Company 3 RIFLES and it was in this role that he deployed on Op HERRICK 11.
Lieutenant Colonel Nick Kitson, Commanding Officer 3 RIFLES BG said:
"Corporal Lee Brownson was the very best of Riflemen,

About Lee
brimming with energy, cheer, modesty and resourcefulness. Such was his self confidence and inner strength that nothing was too much trouble for him in understanding and caring for the needs of those around him. Whether for his beloved wife and daughters at home or for his brothers in arms here in Afghanistan, his first priority was to take care of others.
"His loss leaves a gaping hole but we shall close ranks and continue the fight, a fight at the forefront of which he was always to be found. We honour his brave sacrifice, saluting his commitment and example.
"He played a massive part in our work out here, proving himself in combat on countless occasions and giving untold strength to his men

About Lee
through tough times. With spirit and compassion in equally copious measure, he was a beacon of inspiration to us all.
"He was a leader in every sense; commanding the respect not only of those who worked for him, but also of those for whom he worked. Representing the bright future of the army and his loss is a heavy burden to bear.
"There will be no shortage of Riflemen willing to share stories of his life with his children in the years to come. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family. We know that they will draw strength, as do we, from the finest of examples he set in life."
This is an online memorial in honour of Lee Brownson's bravery and dedication. May he rest in peace.
