14th Signal Regiment (Electronic Warfare)

He was deployed with the UK contingent of NATO forces in Afghanistan as an intelligence analyst working for a Light Electronic Warfare Team within the Brigade Reconnaissance Force (BRF) of 7th Armoured Brigade.

LCpl Brynin died of a gunshot wound after his section came under enemy fire while on patrol in in the area of Kakaran, Nahr-e Saraj district, Helmand province.

Aged 22, LCpl Brynin joined the Army in February 2011 and entered the Intelligence Corps. After his initial training he was posted to 14th Signal Regiment (Electronic Warfare), based at Cawdor Barracks in Pembrokeshire, and had already served a tour in Afghanistan in 2012. He volunteered to train with the BRF and deployed back to Afghanistan in August 2013. Known as Jay to his friends, he excelled in the Army and had already been selected for promotion to corporal. His officers commended him as an outstanding soldier with talent and leadership qualities. Full of energy, he had an infectious enthusiasm for all aspects of military life. He also had a passion of all things with 4 wheels and was an avid fan of Brighton and Hove Albion Football Club.

LCpl Brynin leaves behind his father Efrem, mother Sharon, sister Yasmin, girlfriend Olivia, and his 12 year old labrador, Luke. His family issued the following tribute: "Heart of a lion, we will always stand strong for you. We will never forget. Rest in peace."

A private funeral with full military honours was held November 5, 2013 at St Mary's Church, Pulborough. Several hundred people lined the town's streets to watch the cortege pass.
