Family pays tribute to SAS trainee

By Ellen Branagh

A reservist who died yesterday after falling ill during training earlier this month "adored the Army", his family said.

Corporal James Dunsby (31) died in hospital where he had been in a serious condition since taking sick during the SAS selection exercise on the Brecon Beacons on July 13, one of the hottest days of the year.

His death follows that of Edward John Maher and Lance Corporal Craig John Roberts, who also lost their lives after collapsing during the military exercise on south Wales' highest mountain.

In a statement Cpl Dunsby's family said yesterday: "He was the most loving and dependable husband. James adored the Army and believed so passionately in his duty as a protector of Queen and country and of the realm."
