me Jamie and Paul
im trying to raise money for a event I have arranged in memory of our old school friend Jamie.
Jamie loved football he was a great goal keeper would dive no matter what surface we played on, every break and after school we played football in any conditions, Jamie had always wanted to join the armed forces that's all he had ever wanted to do, but sadly here is a little about Jamie's time in the army...
LCpl Fellows was born in Sheffield on 15 May 1982. Having joined the Royal Marines in November 2006 at the age of 24, he excelled in training, being awarded the King’s Badge as best recruit in his Troop. In May 2007 he joined Whiskey Company, 45 Commando, and immediately threw himself fully into life in the Royal Marines. His sporting prowess was quickly noticed and in keeping with his tough, resilient nature he was selected to represent the unit in the Royal Marines Boxing Championships and was subsequently invited to enter the Royal Navy Boxing Championships to represent the Royal Marines. But it
is with great sadness that Whiskey Company, 45 Commando Group Royal Marines, must confirm the death of Lance Corporal Steven Fellows Royal Marines, known to all as 'Jamie'. He was killed in action on Friday 12 December 2008 in Sangin, Helmand province, Afghanistan.
Shortly before 0900 hrs on Friday 12 December 2008 1 Troop Whiskey Company was conducting a foot and vehicle patrol in the Green Zone south of Forward Operating Base Jackson when a Jackal vehicle struck an improvised explosive device in the Helmand River Wadi. All three of the vehicle occupants were wounded with LCpl Fellows’ position as the vehicle commander taking the full brunt of the explosion. Despite a rapid withdrawal to the Forward Operating Base’s medical facility, and subsequent evacuation by helicopter, LCpl Fellows was pronounced dead without regaining consciousness.
So in memory of him I have got all our friends we played football with together (we're all 34 now) and we are playing a charity football match against the Royal Marines fc in his memory to raise money for a great charity
