Peter Eustace

British Lance Corporal Peter Eustace, age 25, of Liverpool, England, died on November 16, 2011, in Helmand Province, Afghanistan, when the armoured vehicle he was travelling in struck an improvised explosive device.

Peter was a member of the 2nd Battalion The Rifles. He was serving with Delhi Company of the 1st Yorkshire Regiment, attached to the Combined Force in Nahr-e Saraj in Helmand Province.

He had previously served hard-fought tours in Iraq and in the deadly Sangin district of northern Helmand. He returned to Afghanistan last month. 
Light a candle for Peter.
Light his way to Heaven.

Military officials describe Peter as one of those men you can completely rely on when things get tough.

Family members said that Peter was very fit and that he always wanted to join the Army. He was committed to carrying out a full career there. He will be missed by his family and friends and is loved by all.

Peter is survived by many loving friends and family members including his mother, Carol; sister Kirsty; brother Ryan and girlfriend Aimi.

Let us pray to God the Father, Jesus, all of the saints and all of the angels that Peter Eustace is in heaven. Let us pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen
