Basildon Labour group has honoured Corporal Alex Guy who was killed in Afghanistan on Friday.
Councillor Gavin Callaghan said: "The thoughts of all Labour councillors and members in Basildon are with the family and friends of Corporal Alex Guy, of the 1st Battalion The Royal Anglian Regiment, at this difficult time.
"For nineteen years he served his country with distinction and we are enormously proud of him.
"We are also proud of Corporal Guy's colleagues that are serving in Helmand province at this time. It is right that The Royal Anglian Regiment were granted the Freedom of Basildon last year and we wish them a safe and progressive tour."
