The mother of a former Perth soldier who died at Deepcut Army barracks will continue to push for an inquiry into her son’s death.
Yvonne Heath, nee Collinson, revealed she will attend a fresh inquest into the death of Private Sean Benton, and stressed she is still optimistic of achieving the same for her son, James.
She was speaking as a pre-inquest hearing took place to set out the legal procedure for the inquest into Pte Benton’s death. It will be held at Surrey Coroner’s Court in Woking in January.
Mrs Heath, 51, now of Cheshire, said she will travel to Pte Benton’s inquest to show her support for the families of the other young recruits who died at Deepcut Army barracks between 1995 and 2002.
