Background: This workout is dedicated to Marine Tony Evans of J Company, 42 Commando Royal Marines, who was killed during an insurgent attack on November 27, 2008.

The men had been conducting a foot patrol to the north-west of Lashkar Gah in Helmand province. Marines Evans and Sparks had moved on to the roof of a compound when, at around 0900 hours, there was an attack by insurgents armed with rocket-propelled grenades in which, the men badly wounded.

Both received immediate medical attention and were moved to a secure location before being put on a helicopter to be transferred back to Camp Bastion. However, both sadly died from their injuries during the flight.
