Soldier found dead in Arborfield

Breaking news on Sky...... A soldier has been found dead in Arborfield Garrison. There are no other details at the moment.
If that is the case it's tragic that anyone gets in a situation where they are so depressed that they wish to take thier own life.

That said it will no doubt be added to the list of 'suspicious' deaths at Army camps and there will have to be a few more inquiries before the whole thing is allowed to rest.
God rest him
RIP goes without saying, Stagging on at that gate is boring but I wouldn't go that far, I do hope a proper investigation is carried out and they get down to why he did it, some people say its a cowards way out, I say it takes balls of steel and some big BIG reason to take that action. Arte Et Marte
I echo all the sentiments above.

Always desperately sad to go (wo)man down, however or whyever - with profound empathy for family & friends.

RIP, mate.
My sympathies to his family. They shouldn't have to go through this. RIP
