A new inquest into the death of a Territorial Army soldier who died of heatstroke in Iraq more than 10 years ago begins today.
Private Jason Smith, 32, had repeatedly told medical staff he was feeling unwell due to high temperatures, sometimes over 50C (122F), after being deployed in June 2003. He reported sick in August the same year.
On August 13 he was found lying face down and was taken to hospital, but he had suffered a cardiac arrest and was pronounced dead.
An inquest was originally held in 2006, at which assistant deputy coroner for Oxfordshire Andrew Walker recorded that Pte Smith's death was caused "by a serious failure to recognise and take appropriate steps to address the difficulty that he had in adjusting to the climate".
The new hearing was ordered by the Supreme Court in 2010 after Pte Smith's mother Catherine applied for a second inquest to take place.

In interviews with British broadcasters, an adviser to President Assad has blamed al-Qaeda for chemical weapon attacks and accused President Obama of lying about the situation in Syria.
Bouthaina Shaaban claimed that al-Qaeda was behind the use of chemical weapons, telling Channel 4 News: "Those who are killing the Syrian people, raping women, kidnapping Christian clerics, those are not opposition, those are al Qaeda."
Shaaban has also spoken to Sky News where she accused President Obama of using "lies" to justify military action and compared the situation to Iraq:
"They claim to want to be targeting weapons in exactly the same way they claimed to be targeting weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.
"They are using the same lies, the same fabrications, the same claims, in order to target our country and our people."
A British soldier fired a volley of bullets into the "twitching" bodies of Iraqis after a firefight, a public inquiry has heard.
Former army private Duncan Aston told the Al-Sweady Inquiry he also saw a fellow private stamp on the head of a dead Iraqi, and other comrades punch and kick a detainee.
But he did not report the incidents, because he did not want to "grass" on his friends, he said.
Mr Aston, who was serving with the 2nd Battalion the Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment (2PWRR), said his platoon sergeant demanded his weapon from him then opened fire on the bodies.
The Al-Sweady Inquiry is examining allegations that British troops mistreated and unlawfully killed Iraqi detainees after the Battle of Danny Boy in southern Iraq in May 2004.
