Memorial service for local man killed fighting against ISIL

A ceremony will be held in Nerang this afternoon to remember the Gold Coast man who died fighting against ISIL.

Hundreds are expected to gather at the Somerville Chapel at 1pm for the memorial service for Reece Harding.

The 23-year-old was killed on a Syrian battlefield 12 months ago when he stepped on a landmine while fighting for the Kurdish militia against the terrorists.
