"The nation today has lost a genuine hero. The army has lost a gallant and respected soldier."
Australias crack SAS regiment is based here in Perth, Western Australia. Sergeant Matthew Locke will be sadly missed.
A true hero, he was slain after exposing himself to enemy fire in a desperate effort to call for support, he was shot twice and still managed to make the call for help, probably saving his entire patrol. Sgt Locke died from his injuries shortly after.
The sooner Aussie troops are home the better.

The US thanks this brave soldier for his service and gives its sympathy to his family.

Thank you, I am leaving a card of condolence at the Swanbourne Barracks (SAS Headquarters) I will inscribe "and from paltalkers" on the card.
