I was horrified to learn of the tragic death of Fusilier Scott Enion.  Scott killed himself at Beachy Head on New Year’s Day.  He was in my recruit training platoon at Bassingbourn and then went on to serve in 3rd Fusiliers.  I remember him as a good soldier; quite shy and retiring but hugely competent for one so young. I am aware that he served in the Gulf with C Company and left shortly after.  I am also aware he had issues with the Regiment and won a claim for bullying.

 

Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.  As Colonel I am sorry that Scott didn’t feel that he could turn to us for help. Please spread the word that OAFAAF applies to all.  If you know of anyone who is suffering, then tell them to get in touch with the Association.  We would never let one another down in combat – let’s look after our own in peace.
