Capt Dan Wright - RIP

Those that knew Dan will be devastated to hear that he tragically died when a military static line parachute jump went wrong yesterday. This was his first ever static line jump. His main chute failed to open correctly and although he cut it away and, I beleive, managed to deploy his reserve it was too late to slow him down.

Our thoughts are with his family and his girlfriend - they must be devastated.

As many journalists use ARRSE as a source of military information and comment for many of their articles you should know you have now identified not only him but may provide enough information to lead the media to his family as well.

Well done
My condolences too. My teams (Mansfield)goalkeeping coach died yesterday after a heartattack on the pitch in the knockup, right in front of the crowd. Terrible. It just brings it back to you that death reaches out at times. My sympathies to Capt Wrights family
