Rfn Lincoln, serving in Iraq, died of wounds sustained during a gun battle in the southern city of Basra. He had entered a building near Basra Palace to tackle the sniper who had fired on his patrol.

Aged 18, from Durham City. Rfn Lincoln had followed a long family tradition by joining the Army just a year earlier. His grandfather served with the local Durham Light Infantry and Aaron was said by colleagues to be fiercely proud of his family's military heritage. He completed basic training at Catterick and passed out in July 2006. His commanding officer stated that he already made his mark in the company as an incredibly keen and professional soldier of great promise. Described by his brother as 'the smart one' of the family, Aaron enjoyed music and art. He was also an avid supporter of Newcastle United football club.
