Former soldier's family cycle for cash
THE family of a soldier killed in Afghanistan have completed a bike ride to Land's End in his memory.
James Munday was 21 when he was killed in the Middle Eastern conflict in October 2008, and now his father, Rob Munday, along with his brother and a family friend, have raised more than £3,000 for Troop Aid and the Household Cavalry Operational Casualties Fund.
Several members of Mr Munday's family live in various parts of Cornwall.
Jill Woodman, who lives just outside Penzance, is one of them and said she said she is tremendously proud of her relatives' efforts to keep her great nephew's memory alive.
"We're all just so proud of the chaps – they all trained so hard for this.
"It was a great loss. We were devastated when he died."
She added that Mr Munday, the 121st British soldier to die in the war, had been serving alongside Prince Harry at the time and both he and Prince William sent tributes to his family following the tragedy.
The amount raised by the ride, which took place last month, currently stands at £3,750.
