Who was Ross Burnside?
A SOLDIER died just weeks after his girlfriend Gunner was found hanged in his military barracks.
Ross Burnside, in his 20s, was discovered in Rotherham, South Yorks, on July 19.
The tragedy came after girlfriend Sophie Madden, 23, was found at the Overhill Training Center at St Martin’s Plain Camp near Folkestone on June 10.
Bomber Ross met Sophie when the two served together in the 3rd Regiment Royal Horse Artillery.
She was with the 1st Regiment Royal Horse Artillery at the time of her sudden death.
The unit said she will “leave a legacy among those she inspired.”
Sophie’s family also paid tribute, with a relative saying: “Rest easy Ross, we will all miss you forever.
“I know you and Soph will take care of each other.”
An inquest in June gave Sophie’s cause of death “suspension”.
Kent Police said Sophie’s death is not being treated as suspicious.
The Ministry of Defense confirmed that an investigation had been launched.
Campaign group Veterans Against Suicide has called the deaths of Sophie and Ross “preventable” tragedies.
An army spokesman said: “It is with sadness that we can confirm the death of bomber Ross Burnside.
“Our thoughts are with the family and friends of Bdr Burnside at this sad time.”
