A Brave Brit Man, Simon Lingard, was killed while fighting for Ukraine

On Monday, November 7, Simon Lingard, who was thought to be from Blackburn, perished during an assault on his unit.

In Ukraine, a British guy was killed while fighting.

When his unit was assaulted on Monday, Simon Lingard, a resident of Great Harwood, Lancashire, passed away.

His family described him as

“the bravest man” and a “true hero”, who went to Ukraine to “stand up for what he believed was right”. A Foreign Office spokesperson said it was supporting the family of a British national who had lost his life in Ukraine. “We are in touch with the local authorities in connection with his death,”.

His mother said she was

“just waiting for him to tell me he was going to go” when the Russian invasion started.

The mother of Mr. Lingard’s two children, Stacey Longworth, told the BBC that her husband had spent the whole of his life in the military and had previously served in the parachute regiment.
