COMRADES of the fallen Colchester-based Red Cap heroes shot in Iraq would like to thank the public for their recent support and messages of goodwill.

Six soldiers from 156 Provost Company, Royal Military Police were killed while serving on Operation Telic last month.

Captain Dave Thomas MBE, Second in Command of 156 Provost Company, Royal Military Police, said: "We have been overwhelmed by the response from the general public to the sad deaths of six members from our unit. We are extremely grateful for all the messages of support, cards, flowers and cheques that we have received.

"I would, however, ask that if anyone is still thinking of sending money to the unit, to instead send a cheque to our Regimental Headquarters in Chichester where a separate account has been opened for the six families."
