To honour the fallen - his fellow Vikings - his friends and comrades who were killed in Afghanistan, Billy Drinkwater, a blind veteran who served as a Corporal in 1st Battalion The Royal Anglian Regiment, bears a permanent tribute to the men who breathed their last on the blood soaked ground of Afghanistan.

Respected by those he served with Billy was a career soldier who, during ten years of Service, was recognised for his skill and leadership. On 31 January 2010 the life he knew came to an end when, in Nadi Ali, he was wounded in an IED explosion in the post 9/11 war.
