Copter victim is named.
Corporal Mike Gilyeat - also a Royal Military policeman - died trying to film troops in battle in Helmand province.
He had left a posting in Northern Ireland after volunteering to go there.
He died along with six others when their Chinook helicopter crashed after dropping soldiers in an area of heavy fighting.
NATO have already said Wednesday's crash may have been due to enemy ground fire.
The Chinook was part of a US air-support operation.
It comes as 1000 British troops face day two of operation axe-handle, in which scores of Taliban fighters have been trapped.
Lieutenant Colonel Charlie Mayo, a spokesman for British forces in Helmand, said: "We're creating pockets in which the Taliban are caught. We're just squeezing them."
Dozens of Taliban have been killed and wounded in fierce fighting this week near Kajaki.
