Thomas Lake

British Private Thomas Lake, age 29, from Watford, England, died on November 20, 2011, of injuries sustained from an improvised explosive device, in Helmand Province, Afghanistan. 

Thomas was a member of the 1st Battalion The Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment.

He joined the Army in November of 2009 and completed training in May of 2010, joining the 1st Battalion The Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment - known as the Tigers - in Germany shortly afterwards.

Military officials describe Tom as bright, professional, hard working and hugely respected. 
Saint Maximilian Kolbe,
pray for Tom

Family members describe him as a wonderful son who was proud to be a soldier. They also state that he was a loyal, fun-loving action man who was always the first to try anything new and usually excelled at it. 

Tom is survived by numerous loving friends and relatives including his mother, Carol. 

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