Sgt. Leeming was killed during operations on the Falkland Islands.

He was part of a returning patrol from 45 Commando when they were mistaken by British forces for the enemy. He was killed along with Cpl. Peter Fitton, Cpl. Andy Uren, and Mne. Keith Phillips. This was just before the main assault on Two Sisters, Falkland Islands. [Source: The Royal Marines Association Falkland Islands Branch]
