Sean from an early age always wanted to join the Army. He always said he would serve his 22 years and then be a paramedic after leaving the army. He was a first class soldier, an instructor at driving, gunnery and signals. Also he had completed 80% of the paramedic course and as a result, was his squadrons medic.

He enjoyed his life, parachuting and snorkeling. He liked to travel, visiting Canada, Egypt and Greece. He was extremely proud of being in the Lifeguards which is a part of the Household Cavalry Regiment.

“Always smart, always hard working, he was a very experienced reconnaissance soldier, who was not only respected professionally but was also a charming individual, hugely popular among his peers,” said Lt Col Edward Smyth-Osbourne, Commanding Officer of the Household Cavalry regiment.

“With his death the Household Cavalry has suffered the loss of another exceptionally talented member of the regiment.”
