    In early 1972, 2nd Field were stationed at Musgrave Park Hospital. A young man attached to the Regiment from a Field Ambulance was shot by an ND from another member of that Field Ambulance. I know all the details of how he was shot but don't know his name and cannot find any mention of him on the Palace Barracks Memorial.
    I'm unsure whether the young man was RAMC or RCT but the shooter was RCT. Does anyone know where I can find the name of this young man?

    BTW, the shooter was found 'Not Guilty' of Manslaughter.

    Cheers Spanny, Searched the Cain project, no mention of the incident.
    I know he was shot in a barracks by an ND but it's as if the lad didn't exist.

    Many thanks those who replied.
    I found, through the RAMC forum, the name I was looking for was:
    Pte Dennis Porter Age 22 RAMC who was killed on 24 Apr 1972
