I'd just like to add a note in memory of Darren Paul Lane who died whilst training on this day in 1981. He was a member of the parachute regiment and was 17 years old. He loved the army and it was his dream to be a part of it. Sadly we'll never know the exact reasons for his death as he unexpectedly collapsed whilst running in training. He is dearly missed by family and friends. The passing years make it no easier to understand or cope with a life that was cut short before it had really started. A lovely lad, determined, ambitious, funny and a massive loss to the paras. RIP Daz, Nev.
