Captain James Linton

It is with deep regret that the Ministry of Defence has to confirm that Captain James Linton collapsed and died on 18 July 2003 following a training run at a British base in Az Zubayr.

Aged 43, he was married with three children and served with 40 Field Regiment, Royal Artillery. His family have been informed, and the media are requested to respect their privacy at this very difficult time. Our thoughts are with them and Captain Linton’s friends and colleagues.
