The two soldiers were said to have been hit in an "indirect fire attack" at the Shatt Al-Arab Hotel after mortars landed inside the base perimeter.
The dead soldier was from the Royal Army Medical Corps. The soldiers' names have not yet been released by the MoD.
The death on Sunday brings the British death toll in Iraq to 119.
A British military spokesman in Basra about 15 mortars were fired at the base, with three or four landing inside the perimeter.
The soldiers were taken to hospital, where one later died. The other suffered a broken arm, the spokesman said.
