The parents of a recruit shot dead at Deepcut Barracks 17 years ago have dropped their bid for a new inquest.
Yvonne Collinson-Heath and Jim Collinson said they saw the families of three other soldiers who died at the Army base in Surrey face new inquests and they did not have the strength.
The first inquest into the death of James Collinson, from Perth, ended in an open verdict. His mother said the family still backs a public inquiry into the shootings.
Privates Sean Benton and Cheryl James died in 1995, followed by Pte Geoff Gray in 2001 and Pte Collinson in 2002.
