Despite a huge search of the area, the police confirmed that a body of a man, now confirmed as Danny Johnson had been discovered in a wooded area at Stoughton Down, near Chichester.
The news of Danny’s death has sparked reactions from former members of his regiment. Editor of the SBT, who also served with 2PWRR said:
“Our thoughts and prayers sincerley go out to the family and friends of Danny at this very difficult time. I was truly saddened to hear of his death, especially as one who served in the same regiment. Although I never knew Danny personally, he was still a Tiger. Rest easy soldier!
It has been reported that Danny had been suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder which has led to an outcry for the government to wake up to the situation and do more to help veterans suffering from mental health issues.
