    I can remember that very day. I was on guard duty at Stonehouse Barracks when the news came through. It was a very sad event.

    The band practice room where this atrocity took place used to be the new intake block where recruits spent the first two weeks of "foundation", before moving into the accommodation in the main building.

    Recruits or Bandies, it was an appalling tragedy.

    RIP.
