Tributes to four killed in Iraq.

Colleagues and friends yesterday paid tribute to the four British soldiers killed in a roadside bomb attack in Iraq.

They were named yesterday by the Ministry of Defence as Second Lieutenant Joanna Yorke Dyer from the Intelligence Corps attached to the 2nd Battalion The Duke of Lancaster's Regiment; Corporal Kris O'Neill from the Royal Army Medical Corps; Private Eleanor Dlugosz, also from the Royal Army Medical Corps, and Kingsman Adam James Smith from 2nd Battalion The Duke of Lancaster's Regiment.

The group were in a Warrior armoured vehicle returning from patrol near Basra when insurgents struck on Thursday.

A Kuwaiti interpreter was also killed in the attack.

Described by her commanding officer as "talented and energetic", Oxford-educated 2nd Lt Dyer quickly made her mark in a post normally reserved for more experienced officers, the MoD said.

She was born in Berlin in 1983 and went on to complete a degree in philosophy, politics and economics at Oxford before heading to Sandhurst for officer training.

She joined the Intelligence Corps in December 2006 and was attached to the 2nd Battalion The Duke of Lancaster's Regiment to gain experience in Iraq.
