Tributes have been paid to 31-year-old Corporal James Dunsby, who died yesterday in hospital after falling ill during SAS selection training in the Brecon Beacons.
In a statement released through the Ministry of Defence, his family said he "adored the Army" and had the "most infectious enthusiasm for life".
He was the most loving and dependable husband, not to mention the most handsome of men of whom could not be more cherished.
James was and will remain a dearly loved, son, brother and husband. He had the uniquely wonderful ability to endear, enchant and captivate all who he met with his naughty sense of humour and highly intelligent wit.
With James as your friend you were ensured loyalty, strength, allegiance, protection and most of all a damn good laugh.
James adored the army and believed so passionately in his duty as a protector of Queen and country and of the realm.
James was so dearly loved by so many and will be sorely missed. Hurrah and Huzzah for James Dunsby; a greater man you could not meet.
We ask to be allowed to come to terms with our grief and loss of our beloved son and brother James.
Corporal Dunsby had been in a serious condition in hospital after falling ill during the exercise on July 13 - one of the hottest days of the year.
His death follows that of colleagues Edward John Maher and Lance Corporal Craig John Roberts.
