The two soldiers who died during a training exercise in the Brecon Beacons were serving with the Territorial Army, according to the BBC.

Defence sources suggested the personnel had "succumbed" to unusually hot weather conditions during the drills in Wales.

The TA is a British volunteer reserve force which recently announced plans to increase its manpower to 30,000.
