Questions are being asked whether a soldier who stole a riffle and ammunition really did witness horrors in Afghanistan.
Corporal Harry Killick, 36, claims to have witnessed a comrades death and had to collect DNA from insurgents body parts in Helmand, triggering post-traumatic stress disorder.
He has claimed that he was suffering from the disorder at the time of the offence.
But Lieutenant Colonel Geoffrey Minton, the commanding officer of Killick's regiment, said in a statement that although he would have been aware of a fatal incident, he did not witness it.
He said that Killick was not responsible for collecting the DNA from body parts of insurgents and he did not under go trauma risk management because he didn't warrant it.
Lt Col Minton added, "The only issue that Cpl Killick had was to do with the tour having finished and returning to civilian life."
