The inquest into the death of a Royal Artillery soldier is set to resume this month

The inquest into the death of a Royal Artillery soldier at Larkhill Garrison near Stonehenge is set to resume later this month.

Bomber Nadine Dorothy Askew, 31, from Sunderland, died on July 22.

The inquest into his death was opened on July 30 last year and adjourned.

Wiltshire and Swindon area coroner Ian Singleton is due to resume the inquest over two days on June 23-24 in Salisbury.

Following news of his death, tributes were paid to the “highly respected” soldier, who was a member of the Royal Artillery School.

At the time, an army spokesman said his thoughts were with his family and respecting their right to privacy at this sad time.

They added: “It is the role of the coroner to determine the cause of death and it would be entirely inappropriate to speculate.”

Bomber Askew served with the First Regiment Royal Horse Artillery and saw one tour in Iraq and two in Afghanistan.

She joined peacekeeping missions in Estonia, serving first with the 26th Regiment Royal Artillery, 16 Sandhams Battery, before becoming a Phase 2 instructor, training recruits on an AS-90 armored personnel carrier with 1 Royal Horse Artillery (1RHA).
