Aged 21, Fus Flint-Broughton joined the British Army in November 2011. He deployed to Afghanistan in March 2013 on his first operational tour. Described as a vastly impressive infantry soldier and it was clear that he had an extremely promising future ahead of him. He was also a motorsports enthusiast and an avid Manchester City fan.
