Deepcut Barracks: UK Govt to hold a Public Inquiry into Deaths and Sexual Assaults.
0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!
Between 1995 and 2002, four young soldiers - Pte Sean Benton, Pte Cheryl James, Pte Geoff Gray and Pte James Collinson - were found shot dead at the Princess Royal Barracks, Deepcut, Surrey. All were on guard duty and the Army & Surrey Police quickly pointed to suicide. Yet from the beginning, allegations about a dark culture at the barracks that included bullying, sexual abuse and violence left the families unsatisfied with the official explanations.
The families of these four soldiers deserve nothing less than to find out the truth about what really happened to their loved ones, and those that suffered sexual abuse or bullying need to see the perpetrators held accountable.
Even Lord Dannatt, former Head of the British Army, believes an Inquiry should be held.
Nothing less than a full Independent Public Inquiry will get to the truth of this dark chapter in British military history.
