Cornwall's rugby community remembers the airman killed in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan.

Corporal James Walters from Leedstown near Hayle was among five people who died near Kandahar.

The 36 year old known to his mates as "Bungle" used to play for Redruth Colts.

A spokesperson for the team said: "To celebrate the life of James who tragically lost his life whilst on active service in Afghanistan recently Redruth Rugby will stage a special match in his memory on Sunday.

As James played for Redruth Colts a side made up of former colts will play an Army side with the game starting at 5.00 p.m. Admission will be free but there will be a collection on the day.

Please come along and help the Club and James’ comrades celebrate his life."
