The brave and supremely confident words of Corporal Ben Novak, a 27 year old Oz-Brit (dual citizenship). He was a Royal Marine and he died in Southern Iraq last Sunday, along with three other Royal Marines on the Shatt al-Arab waterway outside of Basra.
Corporal Novak had been in Iraq for just one week.
His mother said Ben was "so proud to be a Royal Marine. He would wear that uniform whenever he could."
