It has come to my attention that the young guy that was stabbed to death on a Virgin train yesterday (Saturday the 27th May) was an officer cadet with Tayforth UOTC. I am not a member of this unit but I have been emailed the following statement by a mate which will appear on the TUOTC webpage tomorrow.
The BBC report is here:
The Tayforth UOTC Website said:
It was with the deepest of regrets that Tayforth Universities Officers Training Corps learnt of the death of Officer Cadet Tom Grant. Though he only joined the unit in the last academic year he had already made an impact as an enthusiastic, friendly, determined and committed member. He will be sadly missed by his friends and colleagues in the unit, and our deepest sympathy and prays go to his family, friends and other university colleagues at St Andrews.
