An inquest held in June gave Sophie’s cause of death as “suspension”.

Kent Police said Sophie’s death is not being treated as suspicious.

The Ministry of Defence confirmed an investigation had been launched.

Campaign group Veterans Against Suicide have called Sophie and Ross’ deaths “preventable” tragedies.

An Army spokesman said: “It is with sadness that we can confirm the death of Bombardier Ross Burnside.

“Our thoughts are with Bdr Burnside’s family and friends at this sad time.”
