Tributes have poured in for part-time soldier Lance Corporal Craig Roberts from Lewisham described as a "true gentleman" who died during a military training exercise on one of the hottest days of the year.
Friends of Mr Roberts, a maths teacher originally from Penrhyn Bay near Llandudno in North Wales, took to social media to pay homage to a man described as a "caring, genuine guy".
Absolutely devastated by the news of Craig. He was one of my closest friends growing up, had so many good times together.
He was honestly one of the most genuine and caring guys I have ever met. R.I.P Craig. You'll never be forgotten, thoughts are with your family. I'll miss you buddy."
RIP pal...you were one in a million.. forever in my heart.
