He was part of the 3 Rifles Battle Group deployed with the UK contingent of NATO forces in Afghanistan.

Rfn Kinggett was killed by small arms fire during a routine foot patrol near Sangin in Helmand province. He was shot while providing covering fire for the evacuation of a wounded comrade.

Aged 19 from Dagenham, Greater London. Rfn Kinggett joined the army in 2007 and re-enlisted in 2009 after leaving for a short time. He deployed to Afghanistan on his first operational tour in October 2009. Described as a confident, fun loving and witty character, he matured quickly into a highly professional soldier.

His family said, "Martin was a loving son, brother, grandson, uncle and boyfriend. He will be missed by many, many people who know him and loved him. He gave his life doing what he loved, he always wanted to be a soldier. He will always be our hero."

Funeral with full military honours was held on March 23, 2010 at the Catholic Church of the Holy Family, Oxlow Lane, Dagenham.
