Rifleman Daniel Wild, 2nd Battalion, The Rifles, was killed in Afghanistan on 13 September 2009, while trying to save a wounded comrade.

Captain Mark Hale and Rifleman Daniel Wild, both of 2 Rifles, went to the aid of Lance-Bombardier Matthew Hatton, 40th Regiment R.A. (The Lowland Gunners) who was among three men injured when an improvised explosive device detonated near Sangin, Helmand province. They were carrying him to a helicopter landing zone when a second device went off killing all three men. Sold with copied research.
