A SOLIDER who died from a ‘non-battle injury’ while serving in Estonia will be repatriated in Oxford today.

The circumstances surrounding the death of Private Reece Miller are not yet known but the Ministry of Defence confirmed his death on Tuesday.

An aircraft carrying his body is scheduled to arrive in RAF Brize Norton at about 1.30pm.

The cortege is expected to arrive at John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford, at around 4pm.

It is expected that veterans will form a guard of honour at St Anthony of Padua Church in Headington.

The church has become known as ‘The Final Turn’ and has become a key part of the route repatriated soldiers take from the Brize Norton base.

In a statement, the MoD said: “It is with great sadness that the British Army must confirm the death of Private Reece Miller from the 1st Battalion The Yorkshire Regiment (1 YORKS) as a result of a non-battle injury while serving in Estonia.

“The incident is currently under investigation.

“Our thoughts remain with his family and friends at this difficult time.”

More than 800 British military personnel were deployed to Estonia in February this year to counter intensifying aggression placed on Britain and its allies from Russian forces.
