This video is of a speech by Rose Gentle in 2006.

Brown told ‘bring them home’

The mother of a British Soldier killed in Iraq has urged Gordon Brown to withdraw troops from Iraq when he becomes prime minister.

Rose Gentle‘s son Gordon was killed in Iraq in 2004 while serving with the Royal Highland Fusiliers.

Ms Gentle said that she was sickened to learn that the 150th British soldier had been killed in Iraq.

She said: “I think Gordon Brown should be thinking ‘this is the time, this is it – bring them home.'”

The soldier, who has not yet been named, from the 4th Battalion, The Rifles was shot and killed when his patrol came under fire in the al-Atiyah district in the northern region of Basra City.

Airlifted to a field hospital, the soldier received emergency treatment, but died of his wounds.
