British soldier will not be charged over death of comrade in Afghanistan From The Argus The inquest into Lance Corporal James Brynin's death was halted after six days of evidence last year amid fears the fatality, which was initially suspected to have been caused by "friendly fire", may have been a homicide.
L/Cpl Brynin, 22, who was born in Shoreham, was shot dead on an operation in central Helmand Province on October 15 2013. He was part of a troop carrying out intelligence work on the Taliban in the area of Kakaran, north east of Lashkar Gah. Despite receiving immediate medical attention, L/Cpl Brynin, known as Jay, died at the scene. Relatives of L/Cpl Brynin were informed of the decision on November 30 last year, Ms Schofield added. Lieutenant Colonel Edward Hayward, the commanding officer (CO) of the Household Cavalry Regiment, oakley sunglasses discount sale choked back tears as he spoke about the "profound effect" the fatal shooting had had on L/Cpl of Horse Kelly. He recalled a meeting he had with L/Cpl of Horse Kelly during which he broke down in tears. Lt Col Hayward said: "He is a fairly experienced soldier and I said, 'How are you coping?' And he said, 'Fine'. "And then I asked him to pause. I told him that today was the first day of the rest of his life when he would have to live with the knowledge he had killed one of his fellow soldiers, and then he broke down."

"Like a lot of us, we tend to learn a lot from our mistakes rather than get it right all the time." No concerns were raised about L/Cpl of Horse Kelly during his training. And there had been "external validation" of L/Cpl of Horse Kelly's training since the death "so that it wasn't just about us marking our own homework", he said. L/Cpl Brynin's mother Sharon left the courtroom as Lt Col Hayward added such "blue on blue" incidents were a "risk of the profession".

"As for whether there is a single document to learn about this incident, site da oakley no there isn't." The coroner is expected to deliver her conclusion on Tuesday following final submissions by representatives for the Ministry of Defence and L/Cpl Brynin.
