Lt/Colonel Michael Foster-Brown said: “The Regiment was shocked, saddened and angry to hear of the sudden death of Sgt Dejion Stange. He was a respected senior member of the Regiment of eight years service, having been conscripted at the age of 18.

“He took to military life and was good at it, achieving rapid promotion through the ranks and was a Sergeant by November 2011, and had been the Platoon Sergeant of 2 Platoon A Company for almost exactly a year.”

Col Foster-Brown added: “His loss will be strongly felt across the Regiment, but particularly in A Company and the Sergeants’ Mess. Our thoughts are with family, particularly his parents Sandrine and Andre, his step-mother Tami, his three sisters and his brother.”
