A reservist who died alongside a colleague during an assessment for the Territorial Army's SAS section on the hottest day of the year was pursuing his dream, his family said today. Lance Corporal Craig Roberts died during a military exercise in the Brecon Beacons on Saturday.
In a statement issued through the Ministry of Defence today, Mr Roberts's father Kelvin said:
We are all devastated at the loss of our beloved Craig; this has left a massive hole in all our lives.
We wholeheartedly supported Craig in his military endeavours and it gives us some comfort, though great sadness, that he died in the pursuit of his dream.
Next month Craig was due to start a new post in the office of the Secretary of State for Education and we were all very proud of him.
