|Portrayed by:||Marvin Campbell|
|Appearance(s):||28 Days Later (film)|
|Profession:||British Army soldier|
|Cause of death:|
During the Original Outbreak of the Rage Virus, the unnamed soldier and the rest of Major West's then-sizeable force were sent to cover the Forty-Second Blockade protecting Manchester, defending it against repeated Infected attacks. However, the Infected eventually overran the blockade and entered the city, killing all the soldiers at the blockade except for West and nine of his men, including the soldier.
West and his men resolved to escape to the Worsley House in the forest, which they fortified against attack with mines, tripwires, barbed wire and barricades. On Day 23 of the outbreak, West made a promise to his men that any female survivors they found would be forced into sexual slavery.
Thirty-one days into the outbreak, Jim, Selena and Hannah arrived at the Worsley House and were taken in by Major West and his men. That night, when Jim discovered that the soldiers were planning to force Hannah and Selena into sexual slavery, the soldiers took Hannah and Selena captive the next day. It is unknown what happened to the soldier when the infected Mailer was released the following night and attacked the uninfected soldiers.
- This soldier was originally merely an extra and background character in the film, until Marvin Campbell was given the role of Mailer.
- This soldier is arguably one of the more minor characters in the first 28 Days Later film, as he is only seen twice in the film: moving the barbed wire on the path to the Worsley House with Davis for the jeep, and at dinner in the Worsley House.
