INQUEST: 'Bright, funny' Commando James, from Billingborough, died of gunshot wound from his own assault rifle

A Royal Marine Commando from Lincolnshire died from a gunshot wound to his head just days after splitting up from his girlfriend, an inquest heard today (Thursday).

James Holloway (25) was found dead by a fellow Marine on the bridge of a Royal Navy supply ship which was moored in Dubai for maintenance work.

Post mortem examinations showed he died from a single gunshot wound to the head from his Heckler and Koch assault rifle while on the Royal Fleet Auxillary vessel, Fort Rosalie.
