    It is with sadness that the Ministry of Defence must confirm that Lance Corporal Michael Taylor from Charlie Company, 40 Commando Royal Marines, serving as part of Combined Force Sangin, was killed in Afghanistan on Tuesday 22 June 2010.

    Lance Corporal Michael Taylor was killed during an exchange of fire with insurgent forces in the Sangin district of Helmand province. He was manning one of the sangars in the patrol base when the incident occurred.

    Lance Corporal Michael Taylor was 30 years old and lived in Rhyl with his partner Sonia and their three children; Ethan, Wesley and Charlton. A former British Army soldier, he joined the Royal Marines on the 26 April 2004. After passing for duty as a Royal Marines Commando he joined 45 Commando, based in Arbroath, Scotland.

    June 2010 - the deadliest month of the war in Afghanistan - with 6 days still to come.

    June deadliest month for NATO troops since Afghan war began

    By Ernesto Londońo
    Washington Post Staff Writer
    Thursday, June 24, 2010; 10:17 AM

    KABUL -- Four British troops were killed in a vehicle accident Wednesday in southern Afghanistan, making June the deadliest month for the U.S.-led NATO force since it began deploying in Afghanistan in 2002.

    At least 79 NATO troops have died in Afghanistan so far this month, surpassing the previous record reached last August, when 76 troops were killed, according to a tally by icasualties.org. At least 46 of the service members killed this month were American.

    Last October was the deadliest month for U.S. troops, with 59 casualties.

    Thursday's grim milestone was reached on the day the top U.S. general in Afghanistan was relieved of command as a result of a magazine profile that portrayed him and his aides as dismissive of senior Obama administration officials.

    President Obama on Wednesday nominated Gen. David H. Petraeus, commander of the U.S. Central Command, to replace ousted Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal.

    In addition to the British soldiers killed in the vehicle accident Wednesday -- the British Defense Ministry said the four were members of a police training team in Helmand Province-- six other NATO troops were killed in bombings and a shooting earlier in the day. They included one American, two Romanians, one Briton and two service members whose nationalities were not immediately disclosed.

    The spike in casualties comes as the U.S. military is deploying an additional 30,000 troops to Afghanistan. The U.S.-led coalition has met stiff resistance in the Taliban strongholds that it is trying to secure.
