Tributes for Dorset Trained Soldier who Dies in Afghanistan

A soldier who learned his trade craft in Dorset and was fatally wounded in Afghanistan, has been described as "one of life's nice men."

Sapper, Adam Moralee, died after suffering severe injuries while preparing equipment for deployment inside Camp Bastion on Wednesday (5th March).

He deployed to Afghanistan in September last year as part of a close support troop within 39 Armoured Engineer Squadron.

During this time, the 23 year old, worked as a combat engineer helping prepare vehicles for his fellow soldiers operating on the frontline in the volatile Helmand Province.

Before his deployment Moralee trained at Dorset's prestigious Bovington Camp where he learned how to drive and repair a wide range of combat vehicles.

Paying tribute his family and fiancée, in his hometown of Newcastle, said he loved his job and was a big joker;

"Adam was a loving son, fiancé, and friend who touched everyone's hearts that came into contact with him. His passion for cars and anything with an engine made him a true petrol head through and through.

He loved his job and the friends he made from his time in the Army, and he would never have swapped those experiences for the world.

He treated his fiancée, Emma, like his princess and the love they shared was clear to all of those who were lucky enough to see it.

Adam touched the hearts of all of us who were lucky to know him and not a day will go by where he is not in our thoughts and hearts. He will be sorely missed by family and friends and forever loved by all. Rest in peace son!"

Moralee's Commander said ... "Life was so much easier, when he was around."
